Devon Shaw ’13 Senior Profile: Hispanic Studies

DSCN2378I am a senior Hispanic Studies major from Haymarket, Virginia. Always having a love for the Spanish language and a desire to teach, I decided to major in Hispanic Studies sophomore year after working with some truly inspiring professors. I spent the 2011-2012 academic year in Spain studying at the University of Seville and teaching high school and adult English classes. I am specifically interested in the way in which language and culture give access to educational opportunity, and in the coming years will be applying what I have learned through the Hispanic Studies department to working with English Language Learners in high-need New York City public schools.
