At the national level, 8 English language teachers were selected who are part of the “Promoters of a Culture of Improvement and Use of Learning Resources” strategy. The call received about 98 requests from across the country.

For Lewis, living an international educational experience represented professional growth. “I am very excited that this program helps me increase my knowledge and get the tools needed to teach English in this modern world and thus be able to teach this generation who is becoming more aware of the importance of English every day in the world,” said the teacher.

Molina expressed that the 9th graders “are already on the verge of leaving the institution, and improving their communication skills is a key factor for us as an institution and for Barranquilla with a bilingual project”.

This unstoppable teacher understands that the English language connects Barranquilla to the world, and provides ample opportunities for growth. In the city, since 2020, the bilingual educational revolution has begun, and year after year its coverage has increased, aiming to reach 100% of students.
