We are very proud of our alumni who currently occupy teaching positions in French and Spanish in secondary schools in Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties, in the Albany area and all across New York State. Many other alumni are successfully pursuing teaching and non-teaching careers in the US and abroad. We are happy to consider them as ambassadors of our programs.

Pursuing a career in foreign language teaching is a popular professional option available to you. By becoming an educator, you can share your valuable linguistic and cultural experiences with students in the classroom and community.
