Why is international experience so critical for future educators?
|As an education major, you might ask yourself "why should I consider studying abroad?", particularly if your plan is to teach in your local school system. More than any time in the past, employers, from local school districts to large multi-national education companies, are seeking candidates with a global viewpoint, international experience and understanding of other cultures and peoples. |
Plus, today’s local schools are more ethnically and socioeconomically diverse than they ever have been, a trend that is only going to continue. Educators with international study or teaching experience will be the ones best positioned to take advantages of teaching opportunities not only locally, but around the globe.
Whether you choose a semester or year abroad, undertake an internship, pursue a graduate degree or even do a summer abroad, you’ll not only give yourself a significant advantage career-wise, but you will also have a once-in-a-lifetime experience that’s never more in reach than during your college years.
