SPO graduate student Alejandro Martínez has been named a recipient of a 2021 Graduate School Teaching Award in recognition of his exceptional work as an assistant in instruction for the fall course, SPA 250: Identity in the Hispanic World (co-taught with Christina Lee).

Students are nominated each spring by academic departments and programs. Winners are selected by a committee chaired by Cole Crittenden, deputy dean of the Graduate School, and comprising the academic affairs deans and staff from the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning.

Martínez said, "I am incredibly honored to have been granted this award, particularly in such an intense and challenging year. Every day I miss having the chance to dialogue with the fantastic group of SPA250 students, and I am forever grateful to Prof. Christina Lee for her support and amazing teamwork."
