Check out the different types of employment that the Spanish Department offers.


A Teaching Assistant’s duties are to prepare and conduct bi-weekly drill sessions (Tuesdays and Thursdays for 65 minutes) that provide students with additional oral practice, to be available outside of the sessions for those students seeking help, and to correct quizzes and exams that have been prepared by the professor. 

While the Teaching Assistants do receive instructions from the coordinator and advice from the professor teaching the class, they are in charge of their own section.  It is a job that requires intelligence, imagination, dedication and maturity.  They are trained, observed, evaluated and coordinated weekly by Diane Pearsall, Senior Lecturer in Spanish and the Coordinator of the Spanish Teaching Assistants.
