An innovative experiment on the ISS Campus “Piersanti Mattarella” in Castellammare del Golfo that will use throughout the academic year 2023/2024 an American reader thanks to the Fulbright Project, the result of the meticulous work of the headmaster, Professor F. Caterina Agueci, who has just signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Italian-American Commission for Cultural Exchange to designate an English Teaching Assistant Scholarship under the Fulbright Program.
Thus, Polo has been awarded one of the eight scholarships made available in favor of Italian secondary schools located in regions and cities in southern Italy and the islands for the academic year 2023/2024.
English teacher Natalie Martinez, a Philosophy graduate from Hamilton College in New York State, will work from October to June 2024 as an English Language Assistant at the Institute for sixteen hours per week, on a program oriented toward language conversation and presentation of issues related to American culture.
The native speaker will, as part of the Fulbright Program, serve as US Ambassador to Italy. “His presence, – specifies the principal of the school, Caterina Aguchi, – represents an extraordinary opportunity to get to know the United States through the subjects chosen for in-depth study, is an indispensable prerequisite for cooperation between peoples and for the realization of internationalization processes, and is a fundamental teaching-training purpose of our school “
