Dr. Baros is a dedicated researcher, educator, and LGBTQ advocate. Her areas of expertise are proficiency-based language teaching and creating inclusive environments for LGBTQ students and people.
This year has been pretty busy - and that's an understatement. Like the over-eager educator I am, I decided to both finish my PHD dissertation AND do all four components of National Boards! (I do not recommend doing that, by the way). But last week, I successfully defended my dissertation and this weekend I'm completing solid drafts of my NBCT components.
I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, and it's more than just a pinprick! I'm excited for things to calm down a bit and begin sharing more regularly about my teaching experiences, LGBTQ advocacy, research, and other projects.
Right now, I'm doing a review of this website, cleaning things up, updating other things, and adding things that are missing (I get to add a "research" page!) Thank you for bearing with me as I do so and feel free to send me any comments or questions you have. I will be sharing information about my research study on the experiences of transgender including nonbinary students in Spanish language courses and the link to my defense as soon as possible.
Happy teaching, researching, learning, and living!
