Building in Cuba.

Mount St. Joseph University professors Clarissa Rosas and Angela Kinney, along with two TEAM MSE students, Joanna Clippinger and Natalie Robinson, were on Cincinnati Edition on WVXU to discuss the School of Education's upcoming trip to Cuba. The trip was open to faculty, students, alumni, and other interested members in the community.

This is the first trip to Cuba for a team from the Mount, and the second immersion experience by the TEAM MSE program in the School of Education.

Mount students and faculty will travel to Cuba from March 29-April 5, and will meet with representatives from the National Union of Educators. They will also visit urban and rural elementary and special education schools, visit the self-sustained eco-community Las Terrazas and explore Finca Vigia where Ernest Hemingway lived for 20 years. TEAM MSE students will also have an opportunity to teach lessons to children in grades K-12 and collaborate with Cuban educators.
