Every fall semester, students in Early Childhood Education have the opportunity to participate in the student teaching in Ecuador program. During eight weeks in their final semester of student teaching students travel to Cuenca and teach at the elementary school of the Centers for Interamerican Studies (CEDEI). At CEDEI School, children ages two through eleven years old receive instruction in both Spanish and English in all subject areas. In addition to student teaching, UW-Whitewater students take a class about the cultures of Ecuador, which is taught by Bill Johnson, who is the film maker of the video.

The students also study Spanish, dance, cooking, and participate in trips to historical and indigenous villages in the Southern Andes. For further information about the student teaching in Ecuador program, please, see our program website.
