Against a backdrop of alcoholism, adolescent drug use, gangs, and broken homes, teachers in Ecuador are often overwhelmed and undervalued. When school leaders like Santiago received and began using the Dream Maker curriculum in their schools last year, they saw things change for the better. At the beginning of the school year, Santiago led his faculty through the life map exercise, an activity he learned during our July 2016 conference. “I felt like it cleansed the inside of us,” he says. The curriculum helped Santiago witness transformation at his school, and has encouraged him to move towards his goals.
