2019 Conference Madrid—Attendees—ESA ISA

Attendees at the Trainer Conference, October 11-13, 2019, Madrid

The 2nd International Suzuki Teacher Trainers Convention, October 11-13, 2019, brought together 111 Teacher Trainers from the throughout the five ISA regions, including teachers from North America, South America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, the Philippines, etc. In two short days, so much was accomplished to bring everyone together around Dr. Suzuki’s dream of a world-wide community of teachers, working together for the welfare and education of children.

Much discussion and sharing supported a growing recognition that, despite the differences in how regions organize their teacher training programs, the participants shared a common vision and work toward the same goals. The theme, “Globalization and Teacher Training in the 21st C,” helped shape presentations and discussions about our future.

Participants felt renewed and inspired and declared the event a success! Many thanks to the ESA for hosting the event and to Martin Rüttimann, Carey Beth Hockett, and Sue Wimpeney for their dedication, vision, and hard work in planning and organizing the event.
