Methods of Teaching a Foreign Language/TESL
a concept that blew my mind
It wasn’t necessarily a concept, but I learned how to appreciate hymns and traditional aspects of church that I wasn’t necessarily accustomed to. I was able to experience God in a new and different way!
cool things i did at dordt
I was involved with Students Without Borders and went to coffee time every week with the international students. I also volunteered at Sioux Center Public with ESL students, studied abroad in Nicaragua, worked in the global education department, and student taught in Nicaragua.
obstacles i've overcome
Coming from a more urban setting, the smaller population and city proved to be challenging; however, I learned to find fun on campus and around Sioux Center! It also helped to get involved and the small community proved to be great because there was always a friend to turn to!
who i was when i came to dordt
I was very sociable and friendly. I was excited to meet everyone and be in community with the people on campus.
how dordt impacted me
I have become more aware and Dordt has helped shape my perspective on various social issues.
where i am now
I am teaching Spanish to 7th and 8th graders at Beveridge Middle School in Omaha, NE! (Updated 2/25/19)
what i would tell prospective students
Dordt is a place full of opportunities. Since it is a smaller school, you have so many ways you can get involved and even go off campus multiple times! It’s a place where you can not only grow intellectually, but also develop a broader perspective of the world.
