TRiO FESP Participants Abroad

Lauralee Perrine

This past semester, I took the opportunity to complete my final teaching internship in New Zealand. This experience has been a whirlwind, and I have learned so much about becoming a better educator. In addition to learning how to adapt to a completely new educational system, I was able to learn about different cultures and how to integrate those cultures into my teaching. I also learned a lot about various models of differentiated instruction, and how to use those in my classroom. In addition to being in the classroom, I had the chance to travel all around the country. I've climbed volcanoes, hiked to the top of waterfalls, sailed on the Pacific Ocean, and interacted with people from around the world. Studying abroad has been both one of the most challenging and rewarding opportunities I have had, and I would definitely recommend this experience!
