Haitian Teachers Update
Last summer, USF hosted a group of educators from Haiti who wanted to improve their teaching skills. Months later, a devastating earthquake ravaged their country, yet somehow, the teachers all survived. The University of South Florida is once again reaching out to them as they try to save their country’s education system. University Beat on WUSF-TV shows you some of the steps USF is taking, and also introduces you to one of the teachers, who is now attending classes here. Also: University Beat on WUSF-89.7 FM has a story of tragedy and recovery. A group of Haitian educators that came to USF last summer to improve their teaching skills all survived the massive earthquake in January. Now, USF is working with these same teachers to help them resurrect Haiti’s schools. That’s this week on University Beat.
