Spanish Language Coordinator

As the Spanish Language Coordinator, I manage the 100- and 200-level Spanish classes each semester. I am the primary mentor for our Graduate Teaching Assistants, and I also work closely with each Lecturer who teaches SPA 103, 104, 203, and 204. Additionally, I assist students who have questions about our language program, issues involving registration, or other questions or concerns related to these courses. It is a true pleasure not only working with our instructors each semester, but also watching how our Spanish students learn, grow, and progress from semester to semester in our Spanish courses.
