"Six years since graduating from UP, I frequently reflect upon how glad I am to have pursued a major in Sociology. The varied Sociology course offerings and wide scope of study within the discipline appealed to me, as did the exceedingly high quality of the professors in the department. These professors always seemed so enthusiastic and excited about their students, teaching, and research. They were highly personable, upbeat, encouraging, and always were ready to bounce around ideas and offer suggestions for any research projects students were working on. More than anything, they inspired me to always be curious and to always keep learning."
Professional background: Since graduation I have earned a Master's Degree in Teaching and have taught Spanish at various levels ranging from Middle School to University.
