    SOE Students to Return to Teach in Africa

    Students from UAlbany and SUNY Geneseo taught in Ghana, Africa last fall semester. Dr. Jerry Rivera-Wilson, Director of Clinical Training & Field Experience for UAlbany's MS in Secondary Education program, documented their travel and teaching experiences in a blog, and the three MSSE student teachers shared what they learned at a panel presentation upon their return in December. This teaching and learning experience proved so beneficial for our participating student teachers that the program will run again in fall 2014.
