EIU grad and local teacher McLain Schaefer reunites with his Australian host family, five years later.

This summer we had the privilege of meeting McLain’s host parents Roger & Kay, and hearing many shared memories between the trio from McLain’s time abroad in 2009.

While completing a student teaching experience, students may live in an apartment, with a host family, or in numerous other arrangements. McLain relates what it was like to come home at the end of the day to his “family” away from home.

Thanks to our CATS dept for a beautiful video, and to McLain, Roger & Kay for sharing this little slice of life with us!
