Statement of Candidacy

I am an Associate Professor of Spanish/Second Language Acquisition, and Director of the Spanish Basic Language Program Florida Atlantic University. I have directed a large diverse language program for six years, lead workshops on language teaching/acquisition at neighboring institutions, and published research on both.

I have a range of research and pedagogical interests which include input processing, the role instruction plays in SLA, interactive task design and development, and Academic-service Learning. I am also interested in implementing what we know about language acquisition through research and theory in the design of hybrid-language programs. Of particular interest are the creation and implementation of psycholinguistically motivated materials into the L2 hybrid-course design. I view SLA research being at the core of decisions we make in language instruction and I seek to increase awareness and accessibility for educators and researchers to these findings. I also view the textbook publishers’ role in providing sound materials as instrumental in this process.

If elected I anticipate contributing the dialogue on both the research and pedagogical fronts at the local (Florida Foreign Language Association) and national / international levels (ACTFL, AATSP). I will bring to the table my range of interests and areas of expertise to AATSP in order to further teacher training and program development. I am also organized and a forward thinker that seeks to contribute to our profession in both research and praxis.
