Lower level Spanish language and culture, Latin American fiction, Spanish-language films
I attribute my love of the Spanish language and culture to living in Buenos Aires, Argentina during my impressionable adolescent years. Later I completed my B.A. and M.A. in Spanish Language and Literature at the University of Utah, followed by a year teaching junior high school in Alaska. After marriage, I began Ph.D. studies, completed all the coursework and passed my qualifying exams. Alas, work on my dissertation on Federico García Lorca was indefinitely suspended due to personal demands. In 1983, I began teaching at Westminster part-time and within two years became full-time. Westminster College has been my professional life for the past twenty-seven years. Meanwhile I have enjoyed travel to Mexico, Cuba, Guatemala, annual trips to Spain, and most recently a sabbatical in Argentina. My favorite pastimes are yoga, urban walking, hiking, skiing, studying French and Italian, piano, Spanish and Argentine films, and doing all of the above with my husband, two children and daughter-in-law.
