Three French teaching assistantships have been granted to University of Portland French studies graduates by the French government, according to Trudie Booth, international languages and cultures. Emma Bauer ’17, Clare Munger ’15, and Jenna Kunz ’17 will be teaching in France this coming academic year. A fourth UP alumna applied and may receive word later this summer.
The assistantships are sponsored by the French Ministry of Education and the Cultural Services office of the French Embassy and give eligible French majors the opportunity to teach English in French elementary and high schools.
The French Ministry of Education sets aside over 1,100 Teaching Assistantships for Americans every year, and recipients work in France for 7 months, teaching English to French students of all ages.
