Kyra Lynn Martiny, Summer 2015 Participant
We went out into schools in Costa Rica, public and private, to learn about, compare and contrast the way they educate their children, and provide services for children with exceptionalities. It was amazing to see how much was similar, and to embrace how much was different about Costa Rican protocol from that which we see in the United States. We met some amazing teachers, interacted with some wonderful children, and saw so many beautiful schools. Even though I myself am not going into early childhood education, I still learned countless things that will absolutely be valuable to me as I begin my professional endeavors later in life.

My favorite part of the program was interacting with the children in the elementary schools and learning about the educational systems in Costa Rica.

Meeting the students and teachers were the most rewarding parts of the program. If I were to ever visit another country on my own, I know that I would never get an experience like that. It was so valuable learning from other students.
