Nos félicitations les plus chaleureuses ! Warmest congratulations! Erin Eldridge ’21 is the recipient of a TAPIF award—the Teaching Assistant Program in France, sponsored by the Cultural Services department of the French Embassy in the United States. She will be teaching in Besançon, France. Erin graduated with a double major in French and Political Science, and a minor in Latin American & Caribbean Studies. We are very proud of her.

The Teaching Assistant Program in France offers you the opportunity to work in France for 7 months, teaching English to French students of all ages. Each year, over 1,500 American citizens and permanent residents teach in public schools across all regions of metropolitan France and in the overseas departments of France such as French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique and Réunion. The American cohort is part of the larger Assistants de langue en France program, which recruits approximately 4,500 young educators from 60 countries to teach 15 languages annually in France. The Assistants de langue en France program is managed by France Éducation International.
