Emily Gaunce


Emily graduated from Acadia with an Honours degree in Psychology in May 2015.  She decided to return to Acadia for a fifth year in order to complete a second Honours degree, this time in French!  Emily has been an active contributor to campus life as a Resident Assistant and Senior Resident Assistant, as a teaching assistant, and through her work on various committees, such as the Senate Archives Committee.  She has also worked as a volunteer with the S.M.I.L.E. programme in various capacities.   Emily will be taking up her position as English Language Teaching Assistant at the University of Rouen. 

Update from Emily  (May 2017)

"Living and working in France has been an incredible experience! Rouen is a city that embraces its history and is a great place to call home. The position as an English language lecturer has been fulfilling. You come to know your students quite well while working together with your fellow lecturers to create a fun and welcoming environment. In addition to the job, I have had the amazing opportunity to not only travel in France but also throughout Europe. I would recommend to every future Rouen lecturer from Acadia to take advantage of the time you have in France to meet local friends, to go on those weekend trips to Paris, and to explore Europe, both near and far."
