“與世界連結,做自己學習的主人” –我的傅爾布萊特豐收旅程

“If you want something in this life, reach out and grab it.” – Christopher McCandless        網路上曾經有一位中學教師霸氣的十字箴言辭職信令我印象深刻,她說:世界那麼大,我想去看看。是的,她道出許多人的心聲,但鮮少人有她的瀟灑與勇氣。受到這十個字的啟發,2014年暑假歐洲背包行回國後,我也暗自下定決心告訴自己—因為世界很大,所以我也要追夢去。然而,教書是我的興趣,沒有辭職的想法,因此只能告假尋夢。感謝台灣傅爾布萊特基金會提供我出國學習的機會,2015年8月我正式代表台灣至美國參與傅爾布萊特卓越教學獎助學金計畫,與其他16位國際教師一起進行教育訪查與文化交流學習之旅。

Their passion for education touched my heart and motivated me. I promised myself at the orientation that I would make the most of my time to observe and learn during the four-month program at Indiana University.
