Nicaragua is the largest country in the Central American isthmus.

Rider’s School of Education continues its 100th anniversary celebration with a presentation entitled Teaching and Living in Nicaragua, on Tuesday, April 9, from 5 to 6:15 p.m. in the North Hall Board Room.

Meghan Wischusen, a recent graduate of the teacher preparation program at Providence College who spent the past two years living and teaching in Nicaragua as a Peace Corps volunteer, will discuss her unique educational experiences in the Central American nation.

Food and raffle prizes will also be available to students in attendance, but a ticket to the event is required. Tickets are free, but must be obtained through the Department of Teacher Education, and because of space restrictions, there is a limit of 100.

For more information, contact Dr. Tracey Garrett, associate professor of Teacher Education, at tgarrett@rider.edu.
