Last month, Gilberto Pinzon, Andreina Story and Silvana Carpio went to Spain to coach teachers in how to incorporate VESS to their own schools programs.

Gilberto and Silvana were both key note speakers at a conference with more than 400 participants. They were both inspirational and made an impact in the audience.

Today, we are very proud to say that after this presentations and the amazing work of Edu1st Spain Team, who has been spreading the word in Spain and representing VESS there, we received confirmation of a 7 schools community in Spain that will start incorporating Edu1st.VESS program to build cultures of thinking at their schools.

Durante esta semana, Edu1st estuvo presente en los Colegios Eccleston, entrenando a más de 120 docentes de nivel inicial, primaria y secundaria. La alianza entre éstos colegios y Edu1st se ha llevado acabo desde hace 4 años, en los cuales se ha incorporado el modelo VESS (vida equilibrada con sentido y sabiduría) a su proyecto pedagógico. Gracias a los Colegios Eccleston de Argentina, por dar ejemplo y ser un modelo de compromiso educativo que transforma sociedades y vidas.

Last year was remarkable for Edu1st preschools.

2014-2015 VPK Program Rate was 100% in all of our Broward preschools:

All are contributors to the amazing VPK scores of Edu 1st Schools:

  • VPK Teachers & Assistants: Delivery and knowledge of what needs to be taught and how
  • School Leaders: Guiding and coordinating of all details
  • Families: For their support and trust

 Everyone and everything impacts learning, the environment and the results! Hard work and effort is always worth it.

Congratulations to all the team! We are super proud of all of you!
