Graduates teaching abroad

Eight May graduates have earned the opportunity to start their professional careers in Europe. Five are on their way to Spain and three to France after receiving assistantship positions to teach English during the upcoming academic year.

Three students were selected to teach in France through the Teaching Assistant Program funded by the French government:

• Lauren Dayton (’11), an English and French double major from Terrace Park, Ohio, will be teaching in Besançon.

• Grace Pardo (’11), a French and religion double major from Atlanta, will be teaching in Tours.

• Mary Kate Wagner (’11), an English and French double major from Barto, Pa., will be teaching in Lyon.

Five students were chosen as teaching assistants in Spain through the Cultural Ambassadors program funded by the Spanish Ministry of Education:

• Barry Keane (’11), a Spanish and chemistry major from Sullivan’s Island, S.C., will be teaching in Madrid.

• Shannon Moore (’11), a Spanish and biology double major from Johnson City, Tenn., will be teaching in Los Corrales de Buelna.

• Taylor Winn (’11), a Spanish major from Norfolk, Va., will be teaching in Olivares.

• Kennedy Wolfe (’11), a Spanish major from Hillsborough, N.C., will be teaching in Murcia.

Both the French and Spanish programs are designed to give American students the experience of living and working in another country while teaching English to elementary and secondary students.
