Elms College plays host to Fulbright Language Teaching Assistants who bring their language and cultural knowledge to our students. Our instructors are Fulbright Scholars and passionate world-travelers and educators who have many unique experiences to share with our students. Each FLTA spends one year at Elms College.
In the past we have hosted FLTAs from Morocco, Ireland, and Japan. 2012 graduate David Peters was the first Elms College student to earn an FLTA post in Taiwan. During the 2014-2015 academic year, Elms College will host two FLTAs - Vikki Ni Bhrein from Ireland and Keiya Uchida from Japan. Vikki will teach novice and intermediate courses in the Irish language. Keiya will teach novice and intermediate courses in the Japanese language.
We invite all Elms students to take a class with our visting FLTA(s), and to get to know them at our many international events.
We are a Catholic liberal arts college founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Springfield, Massachusetts.
