Special Education is not readily available in China, and we want to help teachers like those in our Believe in Me orphanage schools who work with children of all levels and abilities have a multitude of ideas and inspiration at their fingertips. Within the next few weeks, LWB will be launching our new Education Resource website in China. Read more.

Announcing The 2012 Teacher Training Team

The wait is over, and we are ready to announce that we have found our team for the 2012 teacher training! We are so thankful for the dozens of amazing educators who applied this year. We had a really challenging job narrowing down who would be on this year’s team as all of the applicants were so talented. How awesome that so many teachers and therapists across America wanted to give a week of their summer break to help orphaned children with special needs in China!

The team that has been chosen represents a diverse set of skills that we feel will be extremely beneficial for the training. Our team members include Amy H. from Florida, seen above with her family. Amy brings 11 years of teaching experience in Elementary Education with special education inclusion. Read more.

Calling All Educators!

Are you an educator or a special educator, or someone who has connections to a school?  Are you a professional who works with children who have special needs?   If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may be able to help us with an important project for our LWB Education program!

Most of the students in our Believe In Me Schools have mild to moderate special needs.  As the population attending our schools grows and changes, we continue to provide our teachers with the essential ongoing support and training that they need.  As part of this training, we are hoping to put together videos of various special education lessons or activities, as well as some general education activities in the areas of art and music, to provide to the teachers at our Believe In Me Schools.
