Teaching Assistant Program in France
Abby Goff (CSB ’22), Jack Scheck (SJU ’21) and Olivia Solano (CSB ’22) recently met up in Lyon, France, while on break from teaching English in their respective regions of France (Goff: Amiens; Scheck: Bordeaux; Solano: Grenoble). The three alums were accepted to the Teaching Assistant Program in France (TAPIF) during 2022-2023... and are dreaming about staying beyond... You can be an Assistant, too! See Prof. Conboy for more information.
TAPIF offers students the opportunity to work in France teaching English to French students of all ages.
There can be unexpected joys and discoveries as part of a TAPIF experience.
