Chillicothe Campus student discusses excitement, apprehension in pursuing international experience

Sharles Thompson
OU-C early childhood education students Megan Patterson and Sharles Thompson are set to pursue an international experience while gaining meaningful experience during the fall semester of 2015.  Patterson looks forward to expanding her cultural perceptions in Costa Rica, while Thompson anticipates a meaningful experience in Holland.

“These are two students who wanted to go to the next level,” said OU-C Dean Martin Tuck.  “They wanted to do it because of the experience, but they also wanted to do it because they felt that this would make them better teachers, and I’m very proud of them for that.”

 We sat down with Sharles Thompson to discuss the process leading up to her study abroad opportunity, the challenges of her pursuit and the deeper connections with students that she seeks to attain through completing student teaching overseas.
