Through the Hispanic Studies program, learning the Spanish language became a way of life. The program gave me the background I needed to work with in situations involving intercultural communications, such as teaching English to immigrants and traveling to Mexico for educational conferences.

Seeing my students make connections, in regards to language or culture, is the most rewarding part of my job. I hope that any class I teach does something to help students gain a new perspective on the way they communicate and their role within a larger global community.
