I love this woman! This was a seminar class and she did a great job of balancing discussion with making sure major themes were covered and us getting the most out of the readings. She is so nice and approachable that her classroom is an environment where you want to talk and keep talking. She really knows A LOT about Latin America and is always wanting to know more. She relates with students very well and is quite available outside of class. She really cares about her students and it shows in her prompt and warm responds to e-mails and willingness to help. She is the type of professor you WANT to write papers for because there is such a level of mutual repect in her classroom. If you are at all interested in Latin America this woman cannot be missed.
