As a graduate student at Yale University Ms. Coté taught several language courses and, in 1990, she won a teaching prize for which she was nominated by her students. At Dartmouth College, as a visiting instructor, she had the privilege to work and attend a seminar with Professor Rassias, the creator of the Rassias Method for Language Teaching, a very effective method that Ms. Coté has had the opportunity to use in her classes.

Senior Lecturer Coté teaches a new course CAS LI 305, which combines advanced language study with the presentation of selected topics in modern and contemporary Italian culture.
