tv_News 10dbMONTICELLO – The University of Arkansas at Monticello and the School of Arts and Humanities welcome Emmanuel Snyders, Fulbright teaching assistant of French.

   I asked Synders how he chose UAM. When he applied to the Fulbright program to come to the United States, he requested to be in the south to enjoy the warm climate. He did not know what to expect, because he was not familiar with our country. The Fulbright program made the decision to send him to UAM.

   “While here, I hope to meet new people and teach French,” Snyders said.

   The Fulbright scholarship covers one year. Then, he must return home for two years to give back to his country what he learned here.  After returning to Paris, he will accept a job in tourism working with English speaking children.

   As part of his scholarship requirements, he must take two classes while teaching at UAM.  He chose American History and Wildlife Conservation.

   Snyders graduated from the Université of Paris-Descartes with a degree in education. After graduating, he taught French to English speakers at the university.

   He said the environment here relaxes him, and it excites him to see the wildlife.
