Hi! My name is Trisha Smithers. I am an elementary education major (PK-8) with a math minor. I am student teaching abroad in Australia for 10 weeks. I am in a 5/6 grade classroom in Newbourogh, Victoria, AU. I am originally from Racine, Wi and this is the first big independent trip I have gone on. In May I did have the opportunity to study abroad with a group and two professors to China. There I was able to visit schools of all ages and even teach a lesson in an English taught High School. It was amazing to see another education perspective and I am so excited to see even another one. This is going to be a wonderful experience!
