Teaching Experiences in Mozambique presented by Jill Trites

Jill Trites, a Senior Teaching Specialist in the Department of Postsecondary Teaching and Learning, will share her recent volunteering experience in the Beira, Mozambique area teaching English courses to primary school students, youth, and adults and provided teacher training for the schoolteachers. She regards her teaching experiences as a significant opportunity to learn more about the culture and people of Mozambique, which is considered to be one of the poorest countries in the world with seventy percent of the population living below the poverty line.
