Our global reputation for excellence in education brings Ecuadorean teachers to NMSU via Go Teacher program
A group of Ecuadorean teachers are living and studying at New Mexico State University in order to increase their English language fluency and expand their knowledge of current English language teaching methodology.
The educators are part of the Go Teacher program, an initiative funded by the Ecuadorean government to improve English education in that country's schools.
This first NMSU cohort of participants will be on campus through Aug. 15. Additional groups will follow in later semesters.
The Ecuadorean Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Technology and Innovation (SENESCYT) has budgeted $10 million per year over a three-year period to send 3,000 teachers to North America for this training. Kansas State University is the lead Go Teacher institution. NMSU is one of three U.S. universities currently working with K-State to implement the program.
NMSU was selected to participate on the basis of its strengths in bilingual education and the teaching of English as a second language.
