York grad chosen for remote teaching in Honduras Hildebrand among 150 chosen for English Language Specialist Program

The U.S. Department of State announced the selection of Erica Hildebrand, York High School graduate, for an English Language Specialist project focusing on remote teacher training in Honduras. Hildebrand is part of a select group, as her project is one of 150 that the English Language Specialist Program supports each year. Erica Hildebrand graduated from York High School in 2006, and she has since been teaching and teacher training all around the world.

of education officials to exchange knowledge, build capacity, and establish partnerships benefiting participants, institutions, and communities in the U.S. and overseas. Since 1991, the English Language Specialist Program has supported in-country, virtual, and mixed projects in which hundreds of TESOL scholars and educators promote English language learning, enhance English teaching capacity, and foster mutual understanding between the U.S. and other countries through cultural exchange. During their projects, English Language Specialists may conduct intensive teacher training, advise ministries of education or participate in high-level educational consultations, and offer plenary presentations at regional, national or international TESOL conferences. These projects are challenging and those selected represent the best of the U.S. TESOL community. In return, the program provides professional development opportunities to help participants experience different cultures and build skills that can greatly enhance their TESOL careers at home. English Language Specialists are counted among the more than 50,000 individuals participating in U.S. Department of State exchange programs each year. The Specialist Program is administered by the Center for Intercultural Education and Development at Georgetown University.
