Sydney Is Studying Abroad !

Hi Friends!

I have been selected to participate in a very competitive program sponsored by the University of Maryland's School of Education where I am enrolled as a Junior in the Honor's Program with a 3.9 grade point average.

With your support, on January 2, 2014, I will leave for the Netherlands to participate in the International and Multicultural Perspectives in Education Program.

The course is intended to help students increase their understanding of the relationships that exist among multiple influences on education including culture, history, politics, diversity, teacher beliefs and values, classroom practices, and home environments. There will also be an emphasis on self-discovery with respect to the differences and commonalities we see among the nations and schools visited. To further our knowledge about multicultural issues in education, we'll have multiple opportunities to observe primary and secondary schools, as well as institutions of higher education.

I am confident that the experience will serve me well as I complete my undergraduate studies in elementary education and go on to obtain my Ph.D in curriculum development.

Your financial support will assist me in making this educational experience a reality. If you are able, please make your contribution no later May 1, 2014.

Again, many thanks for your support!
