Belmont alumnae Mikaila Minott, Hillary Bell, Danielle McCleave and Madison Bradford were recently selected as English Teaching Assistants in schools of the region of Lombardy, Italy. The program is an eight-month-paid internship (Oct. 1 , 2016– May 31, 2017) open to B.A. students who have earned a minor in Italian in a North American university. On a weekly basis, selected candidates will instruct/assist 12 hours in English and pursue an additional 13 hours of related activities. This is a great reward for students of Italian language, literature and culture at Belmont. It is also a unique opportunity for Belmont graduates to continue their study of Italian language and culture while gaining valuable life and teaching experience.
