I’m Carly Vanden Heuvel, and I am currently in my final year of college at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, where I am earning my Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education/English. My biggest passions are reading and writing, and I have found that there is no better way to experience these passions than by sharing them with others through teaching. I enjoy leading discussion-based classes where students have the freedom to collaborate with one another and explore their own creativity. I also enjoy taking my experience from the UWO Writing Center and using it to work one-on-one with students on the writing process.
After hearing about Educators Abroad Student Teaching, I felt like student teaching in a different country would be a unique challenge that I was ready for. I pride myself on being adaptable in my teaching, and what better way to hone that skill than to teach in a different country? Even more, I believe that living abroad will give me the opportunity to become a better-rounded, culturally aware individual. I cannot wait to teach and learn from my students in England!
