I have worked with and been colleagues of the staff at The Language Center since my arrival at Rutgers in 1981. It has been, and will continue to be, my pleasure to be attached to the Center. My teaching has improved and my class planning has become less complicated through collaborations with TLC and its staff.

It is gratifying to me that my Spanish and French studies at Rutgers have served me well in my position as Manager of The Language Center and in my involvement with the World Languages Institute, which addresses the need of K-12 language teachers for continued professional development. Those who have never experienced a world language and culture other than their own probably don't even realize how many riches and rewards they are missing.

If it can be done, we'll do it. The hard we'll do right away. The impossible will take us a little longer.

Working at Rutgers University and The Language Center, in particular, never ceases to amaze me. I get the chance to meet people from vastly different backgrounds on a daily basis. It's great to be surrounded by such cultural diversity.
