Sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Italian, Elwood-John H. Glenn High School Italian teacher Elena Ferriolo recently received a scholarship from the Accademia Italiana Salerno to observe and take education classes in Salerno, Italy this summer.

She was awarded the scholarship as a result of the great achievement of her student, senior Michael Hermanns, who scored first place on the National Italian exam this spring. The scholarship allowed her to visit Italy for two weeks to learn new strategies that she will be able to bring into the classroom. 

“This has been a great experience,” said Ms. Ferriolo. “I am very thankful to Accademia Italian Salerno for giving me this wonderful opportunity to be amongst great educators and I look forward to working with them in the future.”
