HSU Professor Encourages Students to be Involved in the Classroom


Hardin-Simmons students have an invaluable source readily available to us in every class taken: the professors. They are here to help instruct us on the subject matter of the class, but can be widely helpful in a variety of areas. 

Professors are a great source of insight for life in and outside of the classroom. One source of advice stretching beyond the realm of formal education comes from Dr. Rosario Hall.

Hall is from Veracruz, Mexico, and now teaches Spanish courses at HSU.  She began teaching at the collegiate level in 2001 and enjoys educating and helping students.

“When students are learning, we as teachers become even more interested in the subject we are explaining to them,” Hall said.

When asked who has given her the best advice through her life, Hall replied, “A combination of my parents, teachers and mentors. Very often my mentors were my teachers and professors. I received some of the best advice in my life from an undergrad professor who told me to start reading. My professor said that reading will expand my world and books are a gateway into another reality.”

Throughout her many years of education and educating others she had this to say, “The best advice I can give comes from the same advice I received: read,” said Hall. “Also, I would like to add that students should never be shy to ask a question. Talk with your professors, communicate with them. Lastly, take advantage of this time right now and learn because this is the best time you will have to learn.”

Hall is a wonderful professor, and Hardin-Simmons University is blessed to have her.
