Major: Secondary Education and Spanish
Hometown: Las Vegas, NV

My fellowship experience:
I can’t stress enough how much more practice I gained in the education field because of this fellowship.  I was able to practice my Spanish constantly for two months, in and out of the school.  I tried out a myriad of different ideas and concepts in the classroom, and I made lasting friendships with several of the teachers at La Mila.  After this internship, my professional work environment is much less daunting and much more accessible.  I feel like I know where to find the resources I need when I need them.  I also feel that I know how to best use my time and what aspects of teaching and planning deserve extra time.  By completing this once in a lifetime opportunity, my entire professional career will be easier and more enjoyable, both for me and the students.
