I am majoring in Early Childhood Education and minoring in Spanish. I chose Webster University because of the amount of diversity and the study abroad programs. I am aware that I will meet lots of children from many different backgrounds in teaching. Studying abroad is the best way to prepare me for that. It will help me see things from other perspectives I have not thought of and it will make me more globally aware. I will be immersed in Spanish language and culture while abroad to strengthen my Spanish skills. My study abroad experiences will make me a better teacher after I graduate.
