international experience provides an added dimension to a student’s
teaching background which interests prospective employers.

In the middle of July, I attended a GSRP job fair. From the job
fair, I got three interviews and multiple callbacks. The first question I was
asked in each interview was about Australia. My time in Canberra, Australia was the biggest life changing
experience I've ever had. I learned so much about not only the kind of teacher
I want to be, but who I am as a person. I will cherish those memories and
friendships for the rest of my life.
Last week, I started my job as a GSRP teacher in the Lamphere
school district – a dream come true!
