Prof. Soledad Francis is Hispanic Studies’ Faculty Focus for October 2021.
Armed with a B.A. from the Universidad de Concepción in Concepción, Chile and a Master of Education in Languages from the College of Charleston, Prof. Francis has been an integral member of the Hispanic Studies faculty since 2018, during which time she has expertly delivered classes at all levels of the Basic Spanish Language sequence.
Besides her fine work at the College of Charleston, Soledad has taught (among other places) at Purdue University, Colorado State University, Ashley River Creative Arts Elementary, Westminster Preschool and The Citadel. Certainly, this experience in such a wide range of educational contexts confirms something that students and colleagues in HISP well know: Prof. Francis can teach.
In her own words:
“There are two aspects that I like about being part of the Hispanic Studies Department: to be able to hear Spanish everywhere–in the halls, offices, etc.– as well as my interactions with students. It is a privilege to be able to be part of their journey as a student and of their life.”
