Meet Our Faculty

I loved the post Devin made interviewing her professor. For our First Year Seminar class, we had to interview a faculty member and present it to our class. I decided to interview my Spanish professor, Beth Butler. Here is a few questions from that interview to help you get to know another wonderful member of our faculty.

A: Some parts of the US(Southeast), Canada, France, England, Spain, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Germany.

Q: What made you want to apply for a job here?

Q: Why did you major in Spanish? What did you plan to do/did you do with that major?

There you have it! A bit about Professor Butler. You can take her Spanish classes here as a liberal arts essential class or even major in Spanish. I really love her class and it is probably my favorite one of the day!

Stay warm this week! 🙂
