We leave for Chile just 3 weeks from tomorrow! Then, we will be there for 3 weeks, which is kind of crazy! Like the students, I look forward to an amazing learning experience. I have traveled all over our beautiful country, but have limited international travel experience. Also, I know very, very little Spanish; I took it in 6th grade, I think, and then went to a few sessions of Club HoLA this semester. So, the opportunities for growth are immense. I am looking forward to the challenges posed by being immersed in a different culture and language. I am interested to learn about the education systems in Chile, as well as the impact of international travel on the students as they prepare for their careers as teachers. Other than that, I am most excited about the food (comida) and the mountains (montañas)!
