Hola a todos! Hello to all!
Amazingly enough my professors have been keeping me on my toes this week. I’ve had 3 midterms so far and one more coming up on Tuesday. Antonio, my professor for Mujeres del Siglo 20 y 21 (Women of 20th and 21st Century) and Spanish Literature gave us a great review for both classes. He has made my experience at school so enjoyable. He’s quite entertaining. When he asks you to read a paragraph or answer a question he addresses us by saying “super Natalia”. All of us in the class laugh when he does because it’s something we’re not used to. Many of the professors here do that.
Best of all, he has been a great support system. If I don’t understand something I’ll go up to him after class and ask my question. He immediately tells me to relax and tells me exactly what I need to do or explains something I’m confused about. I love all my professors. They are all very helpful and make the classes entertaining. Antonio has a special place in my heart and has helped me fall in love with the language once again.
I have been very fortunate to have had professors throughout my Spanish career that have made my experience worthwhile. You need that passion and dedication not only for the subject but also for helping students aspire to their highest potential. Yes, the work is challenging whether I’m in the US or in Spain. However, my professors have made this journey rewarding. Gracias a todos por su apoyo. Thank you to all for your support.
