Fellow Elizabeth Smith was filmed and interviewed by Vos TV, a Nicaraguan cable TV channel based in the city of Managua.

The interview took place at the final training Smith conducted in a series of workshops at the Roosevelt Institute English Center, a local English language institute in Managua. The director of the center, Ivan Suazo, is a former Fulbright scholar to the United States.

“My role here is to support and develop English teachers throughout the country,” Smith tells the interviewer. The segment goes on to explain how teacher training and development is necessary in high-quality educational institutions.
