Following her graduation in December 2001, Dr. Lansing took a break from the academic world and worked at the New York State Office of Children and Family Services though a contract with the SUNY Research Foundation as a Project Staff Assistant. In 2005, a position opened up at the University at Albany that she accepted and she has been here ever since.
She has taught two courses per semester and supervises the Spanish Teaching Assistants, a job that she finds quite challenging but extremely rewarding. “My graduate work has opened many doors for me. Even though this job can have difficult days, working here continually inspires me to do better, to keep learning, to keep improving. I feel very lucky to have worked with so many great faculty, staff and students.”
Dr. Lansing was hired as a Lecturer and Supervisor of Undergraduate Studies for Spanish in the Languages, Literatures and Cultures Department here at UAlbany.
