We are also indebted to former graduates Dr. Sarah Rose and Dr. Christa Beaudoin-Leitz for their long-term contributions and dedication to teaching linguistics courses for the department.

Since about 2005, our doctoral students have taught introductory courses as part of their program. We are thankful for their dedication and commitment to our teaching program.
