About Grace

I recently completed the Masters of Hispanic Studies program at Auburn University this May, and during my time as a graduate student I also worked as a teaching assistant. Over the past two years I taught several introductory Spanish courses at Auburn, and being in the classroom has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life thus far.

When I began teaching, I was uncertain as to whether I wanted to pursue a degree in teaching. Now that I have taught several courses at the college level, though, I am now considering pursuing a teaching career because teaching has the ability to impact people's lives in a way that I never could have imagined. When I finished teaching last semester, I was not sure if many of my students would continue to pursue the language in the future. Upon reading the reviews of my course, though, I was happy to see that several of them had decided to continue taking Spanish classes in the next semester. Some students even mentioned that my class had inspired them to use Spanish to accomplish their career and life goals.

It is my hope that I can continue to encourage students to pursue their goals and see Spanish as a valuable tool that has the power to connect them to other people and cultures. I also hope that I can teach my students to be actively involved in the Hispanic community around them and to use the Spanish language to bridge barriers within our society. Most importantly, I want my students to learn to appreciate another culture and language other than their own.

Grace helped me understand the Spanish language better. She explained the Spanish language to me in a form that I could understand. One session with her and I felt confident enough about my lesson.
