Focus on Faculty: Paola De Santo

And, I also adore teaching elementary Italian language courses. The enthusiasm beginning students have for Italy and its language is reinvigorating, as is the exponential growth in language competency that is characteristic of this level. 

A Willson Center Faculty Fellow and winner of the Virginia Mary Macagnoni Prize for Innovative Research, De Santo is an Italian studies scholar who truly personifies the liberal arts learning environment - intellectually inquisitive and engaged, an inspiring teacher and active member of our community. We appreciate her contributions to the culture of learning and glad she has made UGA her home.
