International Partnership Presentation
Cabrini University ESL candidates and Liceo de Cervantes LICEO
When: April 28, 2021

Since January, Cabrini faculty members Dr. Susan Jacques Pierson and Dr. Natacha Bolufer-Laurentie with Cabrini students Kevin Nerz, Polly Post, Winnie Doyle, Natalie Overton, and Cristina Govea have been teaching English virtually to parents and teachers from the school in Colombia. This project has been implemented with Volunteer English Program of Chester County and we have been joined by teachers Rachel Van Tassel of VEP, and Jenny and Valeria Robayo who are recent immigrants from Colombia.
During the presentation you will learn about our experiences and have opportunities to ask questions.
There may be opportunities to join our work in the future!
