The best aspects of this Field Period™ were making so many connections with these amazing kids and building relationships. I realized that working in this field can be very rewarding but also very challenging. The best part was learning at the end that I had made a positive difference in the classroom and made an impact with one girl in particular, who really came a long way from even one month before.
My major duties were to assist the class by helping the students while doing work, making hand written copies, doing errands, and just helping when I was needed with various things. I also established an adopt a classroom program between the school in the Dominican and a school in Penn Yan, N.Y.
The best aspects were being in another country and experiencing life as an everyday citizen of the Dominican Republic. Also, I loved the kids!
Among other things, filling water bottles and taping ankles.
The best aspects were meeting some cool guys on the team, and attending every home game. I was even announced at every game as a part of the Lancer staff and ran onto the field with the team. Last but not least, my knowledge of the game of soccer increased.
I conducted interviews with individuals working in social services and spent time touring Taipei cultural sites (temples, markets, tourist sites). I also spent time in Vietnam touring villages, Hanoi, and Halong Bay.
Seeing the cultural differences, sightseeing, and learning many new things.
I was able to bring clients and patients into exam rooms, and I helped prepare animals for surgery, restrained animals when needed, weighed the animals, kept things clean, and other tasks assigned by the vet.
The best part of this Field Period was learning to give injections, observe appointments, and having my first large animal experience.
