It is a test of my character. A test of my skills. This is a test of the person that I am becoming.
On April 21, 2014, I will be flying to Barcelona, Spain to finish my student teaching placement. Words do not even begin to describe how thrilled I am to have such an amazing opportunity. This is my final semester of my college career and I will end it with a bang! I am not holding back, because I want this for me. I want to have that moment of “I saw the world before I had to get serious.” I want to experience a culture that can’t be given to me other than embracing it first hand. I want to share what I have learned with my friends and family, and ultimately with the students who I will one day teach. I want to be able to not have any regrets about what I didn’t do when I had the chance.
So here is the series of events that led to where I am so far:
- On October 28, 2013, I got accepted into the Student Teach Abroad Program
- On February 27, 2014, I received my flight information
- On March 5, 2014, I received information about my host family
It has been a long process, but in a little less than two months it will all pay off!
Here’s to new doors and to living life to the fullest!
