MCL Graduate Wins Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship in Brazil

Richard Hurd:
"As a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Brazil, I will have the opportunity to teach English to university students during the March-December 2013 school year.  Although my journey to Brazil won’t start for another year and my exact destination is unknown, I’m already imagining the possibilities of a Brazilian city, community, and classroom.  I will have so much to share with my new students and colleagues; I will have even more to learn from them.  For now, Brazil prepares to host the 2014 World Cup and the 1016 Summer Olympics, while I continue to study Portuguese and work toward completing my MA in Spanish.  I would like to thank Professors Gindhart, Marsh, Nichols, Alcocer, and Alvahydo for their critical assistance and generous mentorship in the application process."
