Molly Falsetti-Yu learned Spanish at a young age when her family lived in Cuernavaca, Mexico for three years. Subsequently she studied Spanish language and cultural production in Spanish at Stuyvesant High School in NYC and majored in Spanish and History at Binghamton University in New York State. She later returned to graduate school at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst to further her knowledge and where she received her Masters in Hispanic Languages and Linguistics.
Molly has been involved in study abroad in many aspects throughout the years. First she worked at CIEE (the Council on International Educational Exchange) for a couple of years and later was a coordinator for the PRESHCO program at Smith for a number of years. Currently she teaches “Depicting Journey through Digital Storytelling”, for students returning from study abroad.
Her interests range from second language pedagogy and acquisition to indigenous cultural production. She loves to travel and has spent time in Mexico, Spain and Peru. She has been a full-time lecturer at Smith since 2002. She has taught a variety of courses including introductory and intermediate language courses as well as “The Indian Question in Peru and Mexico: Identity, Nation Building, and Cultural Autonomy”. She is currently working on a new course “The Teaching of French and Spanish”.
