Last day of Teaching in Sweden

Today was my last day of teaching at Folkungaskolan. It's been a great four and a half weeks with my fifth and sixth grade students as well as my supervising teachers Karin and Björn while I have been teaching English lessons everyday. I am so thankful to have been given the teaching experience at
Folkungaskolan, and will treasure all of the memories and relationships that I have formed across the pond. My fifth graders were so sweet to even make me a good bye notebook filled with hand drawn pictures and notes.

I loved teaching English to my fifth graders through animals and Disney themes. On Friday, my students presented different Disney movies in groups through singing, acting, or both. They were so creative and fun to watch! My sixth graders were very impressive in their presentations today through comparing the United States and Sweden. It was so interesting to watch my students form their own opinions of what the positives and negatives are within each country with a specific topic such as the economy or gun control. Both grades and their English speaking skills were so impressive through their projects.

Overall, I am so sad to go, but ready to return home and graduate on Saturday from WKU! I have thoroughly enjoyed this great experience in Sweden; a huge thank you to everyone who has supported me while I have been in Sweden, and I am looking forward to seeing everyone back at home very soon!
