Student Experiences: Alternative Practicum is Unforgettable

January 29, 2019
By: Emily Kirk 

Hello, my name is Emily Kirk and I am a new Queen’s alumni! I was a primary/junior teacher candidate who completed the program this past July and graduated in November. My time in the program was certainly memorable but one of the highlights would have to be my alternative practicum. I had the incredible opportunity of going to Kenya along with nine other teacher candidates to work with an organization called Living Positive Kenya. It was the most unforgettable life changing experience and I couldn’t be happier with the decision I made to apply to be a part of this team for my alternative practicum.
