Students and faculty from the education department recently traveled to the Working Boys’ Center in Quito, Ecuador. While there, Clarke students helped teachers at the Working Boys’ Center learn alternative teaching methods to help educate their students. They were the first group of teachers to ever serve at the center.
“The Clarke students were fearless,” said Larry Bice, Ed.D., chair and associate professor of education. “They just jumped in – hard working and compassionate. They gave everything they could to make a difference in the people’s lives.”
Education major Dominick Cinefro said, “When I got to the center, I was thrown into teaching and I just did it,” “It proved to me that I was meant to be a teacher. I did so much in less than two weeks there. I want to go back and see what I could do with two years.”
