Shining Their Light
Student Teaching at Algonquin Regional High School
My professors encouraged me to challenge myself and apply my education to all aspects of life.
I am very thankful for the Spanish program and professors. They emphasized the importance of culture and immersing yourself in the language to internalize what you learned and use it in daily experiences. I can't wait to reflect this in my own classroom!
Spanish Teacher, Chelmsford High School
Assumption's courses and international opportunities expanded my knowledge of a language I love.
Taking courses in Spanish literature, traveling to Argentina to teach, and writing my Honor's thesis in Spanish all have made me a more effective Spanish teacher. My professors encouraged me to become a Fulbright scholar, and I share these experiences with my students.
Student Teaching at Auburn Middle School
I chose to major in Spanish and can happily say it was one of the best decisions I have made!
When I started at Assumption, the only path I was sure about was that I wanted to continue learning and using Spanish in my day-to-day life. The Spanish Department and its professors have given me a deep knowledge of the language and culture, and a feeling of belonging.

Assumption exposed me to new and exciting opportunities that wouldn’t have been possible elsewhere.
I wanted to learn what it would be like to work in journalism, a field I’m very passionate about, and Assumption afforded me this opportunity. Professor O'Hara was a huge influence in my decisions. She believed in me and guided me towards my professional and personal goals.
