Mrs. Katherine V. Denton is our featured professor this academic year.
Katherine V. Denton , M.A.
Lecturer of Spanish
Born in Portland, Maine and then raised in Fayetteville, North Carolina, I attended the University of North Carolina Wilmington, where I studied Spanish, Chemistry and Biology. After completing my undergraduate thesis, “Gabriel García Márquez, el realismo mágico y la identidad caribeña de Colombia”, I graduated with University Honors and a B.A. in 2009. In 2011, I graduated with a M.A. in Spanish from UNCW. During my studies in the M.A. program, I was exposed to diverse coursework and areas of research such as: medieval and modern Spanish literature, Spanish American literature, Spanish film, Spanish phonetics and phonology, dialectology, and Spanish language teaching. My current areas of interest and research include the phonetics and phonology of bilingual and heritage speakers and the Spanish of the United States.
While completing my M.A., I began to teach Spanish language courses at UNCW. As a Spanish Lecturer at UNCP, I teach Spanish language courses at the elementary and intermediate level. I enjoy teaching Spanish to students of all backgrounds and foreign language experience. Therefore, my goal as an instructor of a foreign language is to expose all of my students to the linguistic and grammatical forms of Spanish and to provide opportunities that engage and motivate students to the speak the language and to explore Hispanic culture.
