Haitian teachers meet with Dr. Barbara Cruz of USF's Dept. of Secondary Education Haitian Teachers Update / 9-11 Remembrance
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: The University of South Florida has marked the ninth anniversary of the 9-11 terror attacks with a ceremony featuring a pair of first responders, including a USF student who was a New Jersey police officer at the time and a Tampa Fire Rescue lieutenant who helped search Ground Zero. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 FM has the story.
