Romance Languages and Literatures Professor, Rachel Parroquín, has been named 2015 Indiana Teacher of the Year, University Category, by the Indiana Chapter of the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP). Professor Parroquin will now be considered along with teachers of the year in other languages for the Indiana Foreign Language Teachers Association Teacher of the Year 2015, Central States Teacher of the Year 2017, and American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages National Teacher of the Year 2018.  

AATSP Indiana Chapter President Israel Fernando Herrera called Parroquín’s teaching “sobresaliente,” or outstanding. He explained that her dedication to her students, colleagues, and the community—as well as the innovative ways that her classes bring all three together—demonstrate the commitment and creativity that the AATSP looks for in awardees.
