Sylvia works with students interested in developing and putting their Spanish and intercultural skills into practice in various settings. She creates opportunities for students to understand and appreciate Latinx/Hispanic cultures through literary, cultural, and historical readings and film. She also makes it a point of getting students to engage with Spanish-speaking members of the greater Beloit community.
