I've been fortunate to offer a wide array of courses at Ithaca College, from beginning and intermediate Spanish language classes to more advanced classes in Latin American Civilization and Culture and seminars such as Latin Lovers, Magical Realism and the Fantastic, and Human Rights in Latin America. I also teach courses on Latino literature and Jewish Studies. I enjoy working with my students in non-traditional settings and have had very memorable and gratifying experiences with experiential and service learning courses such as Experiencing Teatro and Teaching Spanish in the Elementary Schools.
On December 10th, 2013, my Spanish class entitled "Teatro: From the Page to the Stage" (Span 260) performed a bilingual adaptation of "A propósito de la duda / From the Page to the Stage" at the United Nations in honor of International Human Rights Day. The unanticipated invitation to perform at the United Nations set in motion a process of collaboration among my students that I will forever remember. It is truly a testament of the creative and intellectual potential of Ithaca College students.
