A New Appreciation Past Review

By (Elementary Education (4-8 Math Specialization), Stephen F. Austin State University) - abroad from 12/28/2012 to 01/10/2013 with

Stephen F. Austin State University (SFA): Traveling - Student Teachers in Costa Rica

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
I gained a great insight on the Costa Rican culture, and a new respect for those who are struggling to learn a new language. I also gained an appreciation for beauty, nature, and peace. The land was beautiful, as were the people. I came back to Texas with a new outlook on life; one that is less stressful and more thankful.
