He earned both his B.A. and M.A. in Spanish Language and Literature, as
well a graduate certificate in Latin American and Caribbean Studies at
USF. After graduation, he worked as a full time Spanish instructor at
Western Kentucky University, where he taught elementary and intermediate
Spanish courses for Main Campus and the Glasgow Regional Center. During
his three years at Western, he served as the coordinator of the
Elementary Spanish section. He also instituted the first Foreign
Language study abroad program at GlasgowRegional Center, taking
students to Mérida, Yucatán (México). Areas of interest: Prof. Jiménez-Arroyo
is very interested in bringing the ACTFL guidelines into his teaching
and in proficiency-oriented assessments that can really measure what
students can do with the language they are learning. He is also very
interested in finding effective ways to integrate culture into language
classes. He is very excited to return to the USF system and to embark on
a new professional adventure at USFSM, where he hopes to lay the
foundations for a new Spanish program.
