I’m doing this campaign to help me go on my mission. Abroad trip this coming Dec to The World. There, I will be attending the University of Maastricht as well as teaching in an elementary school. This experience will allow me to work with people from different cultures and gain knowledge that will help my future students who may not speak English or are from different cultures get the best education possible from me. It also will give me experience in a new place and provide the opportunity for me to not only grow as an educator, but as a person by learning all about this amazing country and the people who live here. On this trip, I will have the opportunity to work along side 15 of my peers and two GVSU professors who will be able to help me learn different techniques and aspects of teaching. I will also have the weekends to travel to places like Paris and Amsterdam, which I have dreamed of since I was little. This trip is quite costly, however, and I would greatly appreciate any help people are able to provide. I am so excited for this once in a life time chance and to be able to grow as a teacher and share my experience with all of you!
