Before going on this study abroad program, I had no interest in being an elementary teacher. I still don’t have an interest in being one. However, one of the key takeaways I got from working with our partner school through the trip was my confidence and self-efficacy as a teacher. I recently completed my student teaching experience in May as a part of my BSA in Agricultural Education, so it hadn’t been long before this trip since I was last in a classroom. I was excited to be able to implement what I learned from my professors and through my experiential learning on a new group of students, especially at an age that I had never dealt with before. It was really cool to see the kids we worked with take an interest in our agricultural activities at such a young age. I had even noticed that in almost every classroom I went into, the students were growing seedlings, which tied in very well to the greenhouse project we were also working on at the school. As an aspiring teacher, I thought it was also really amazing that I was able to develop many of my interpersonal skills like adaptability and effective communication through this study abroad program as well. Not only was I able to further develop some of my skills that will serve me from my future career, but I was also able to learn some new teaching and classroom management strategies from the teachers we worked with in Scotland. No matter if you are planning to be a teacher or not, this study abroad program has a place for everyone as you can develop communication skills, among others, for any future career as well as interact with people of a different culture. One main takeaway I wanted to gain from this experience was how I could manage cultural discrepancies in my own classroom someday, and through my interactions with the students in Dumfries, I feel confident that I’ll be able to.
