Modern Languages graduate students Genoveva Di Maggio and Angela Romero earned the Excellence in Teaching Award after completing the College of Arts & Sciences’ Advanced Graduate Teaching Certificate program with high distinctions.

Both are in the Spanish master’s program at Ohio University.

“These teaching assistants have been instructing lower-division Spanish courses since Fall 2016 (including summer sessions) and their classroom performance and teaching abilities have been recognized by students and supervisors alike,” notes Dr. Muriel Gallego, Associate Professor of Applied Linguistics-Spanish.

The CAS Graduate Teaching Certificate evaluation committee (Dr. Erik Boczko, Mathematics; Dr. Edna Lima, Linguistics-ELIP; Dr. Lara Wallace, Linguistics-ELIP and Gallego, Modern Languages) reviewed their dossiers and awarded the recognition this past spring.
