Teaching and Research Interests

 

I have two primary interests in teaching: content-based classes and literature. The university as part of the larger community is what led to my desire to work with the first. I designed two Spanish classes: Spanish for Health Professions and Spanish for Social Work as a result. My colleague, Ana Gray, and I converted the Spanish for Health Professions course to an on-line course in 2013.

Regarding my interest in literature, my specialization in the doctoral program was Jewish Literature in Medieval Spain. This is an area that continues to fascinate me.

Projects

 

I am currently working on an article on the importance and the background of content-based Spanish courses.
