Traci Roberts-Camps (Spanish)
My teaching approach centers on respect for students.
I consider students to be intellectual equals capable of teaching me as well as learning from me.
I believe that the classroom should be a comfortable setting where students are free to speak in Spanish, commit errors, and learn from their mistakes.
I also think that the Spanish language classroom has the added benefit of allowing students to explore topics that have to do with their own lives.
With this in mind, I like to provide them with the opportunity to talk about themselves in Spanish.
In literature courses I talk with students individually about their interests and suggest Latin American authors they would like to read for class or even after the semester is over.
