The ESE Diversity in Education Florence students traveled home this past week after a semester of new experiences. Sad to being saying goodbye to their new home, but eager to see family and friend in the United States.
Our last class!
During the last weeks in Florence the students quickly finished up there must dos — climbing to the top of the Duomo or Pizza Michalangelo, a last sandwich at Pino’s shop, finding that perfect Christmas gift for family members back home, a treat at the St. Croce Christmas market and saying goodbye to their young students who have inspired them.
Dr. Hauerwas visited the program the first week of December. She attended classes, met with the students to discuss their experiences, provided a professional development workshop for the Florence cooperating teachers and gave a guest lecture at the University of Florence on Globalization of Teacher Education. During that week, we all enjoyed a holiday party given by Fairfield University Florence.
