Liv H. Detwiler has been a part of the faculty at ETSU since 2011. Originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, she spent 4 years teaching high school Spanish in Massachusetts before receiving her master’s degree in Hispanic Linguistics from the University of Massachusetts. Liv credits the majority of her passion for and skills in teaching to her long-time involvement with the Concordia Language Villages, a world-renowned language immersion program for youth ages 2-18, where she served as counselor, credit teacher, abroad teacher, and eventually director. She strives to encourage her students to apply their language skills in real-life settings, and is able to offer such experiences to her students at ETSU through the Applied Spanish minor program. Starting in the fall of 2017, she will serve as the Spanish Program Coordinator, aligning the curriculum in Spanish 1010-2020, as well as advising those newly interested in a Spanish major. In her free time, she enjoys attempting to immerse herself in the East Tennessee culture by learning to play the fiddle.
