The College of Liberal Arts’ Office of the Dean proudly announces Professor Daniela Zappador Guerra as the 2012 recipient of the annual Road Scholar Award. Daniela will receive $1,000 in support of her teaching career as a part-time lecturer of Italian for the Department of Romance, German, Russian Languages and Literatures.
Zappador came to California State University, Long Beach in 2006, and continues to contribute to the success of RGRLL faculty and students. Aside from teaching classes, Zappador creates collaborative instructional materials to support her colleagues in Italian Studies. In addition, she attends workshops and department events on a regular basis and takes her students to an opera in Los Angeles every year.
The annual Road Scholar Award recipient is selected by a CLA committee comprised of the Dean, Associate Dean, a tenure track faculty member, and a lecturer. The recipient must have submitted an application of no more than 4 pages, and must be endorsed by their department chair. The recipient must also have a three-year entitlement or equivalent designation and must demonstrate excellence in teaching by achieving consistent high peer evaluations. The Road Scholar Award endowment fund was generously donated by Dr. John Jung, emeritus faculty member of the Department of Psychology.
