Exchange postcard

Postcard received from Megan Wilson of Holy Trinity Inverell, who exchanged to Poplar Ridge Elementary School in Red Deer, Alberta last year

2014 has been the most extraordinary year. I was placed in a small school just out of Red Deer and have been teaching Grade 1. I have been working with two, more than wonderful teacher aides, an inspiring team of teachers and under two extremely motivational leaders.

I have had the opportunity to travel through Canada and into America. My favourite place of all is the Canadian Rockies. I am totally in love with the Rockies, they are simply majestic.

My exchange experience has exceeded all my expectations both professionally and personally. It is proof that you are never too old to learn and grow as a person and as a professional.

I would love to be able to stay and finish the school year with my gorgeous class but unfortunately time is passing by so quickly and it is nearly time for me to return to Australia.

I know that I will be applying for another exchange in the not too distant future.

If you are thinking of applying, think no more and just do it. If you are about to leave, have an amazing year!
