During all this time, she produced a huge amount of high quality Polish articles, always with a precise and accurate style and exceeding the expectations. Besides, she proved her multitasking capabilities, managing several assignments at the same time, and excelling in providing a really good service.

It is a pleasure to write a letter on behalf of Magdalena Baranowska. Ms. Baranowska joined the faculty in Hispanic Studies at Brown University in September 2012. From my perspective, from the beginning Ms. Baranowska has shown a special ability to adapt and adjust to a new setting. She is very prepared for class, seeks to understand students and goes out of her way to facilitate students’ learning. She seems very attentive to students’ needs, their difficulties, and their strong and weak aspects, and acts quickly when she sees that teacher’s intervention is needed to secure student support. She comes to us with much training in English and Spanish Philology, and ample training and experience in translation and interpretation. Her studies have included courses in pedagogy and methodology, as well as courses in cultural mediation. She is currently working on her Ph.D. in Languages and Cultures in Contact and is very interested in language pedagogy and language instruction. She has received several awards for excellence in teaching as well as scholarships. From my conversations with her, her intelligent questions and her genuine concern with students’ learning, I am positive that she is a promising instructor and this combined with her pleasant personality and quiet demeanor, makes Ms. Baranowska a desirable candidate in any department dedicated to Literature, Culture and Language.

It is a pleasure to write recommending Magdalena Baranowska, an excellent Spanish teacher and interpreter with whom I had the pleasure to work during the spring of 2013. She represents an exemplary balance between teaching acumen and proven linguistic ability that complements her hard work and willingness to assist in her community. Below, permit me go into more detail as to why I recommend her to you so enthusiastically. I first came to appreciate Magdalena’s abilities in the fall of 2012 when she first came to work as a Teaching Associate in the Department of Hispanic Studies at Brown University —where I am a Visiting Lecturer. When I met her 1 was very impressed not only by her enthusiasm but her multiple language skills and teaching competencies. She proved since the very beginning of the school year to be trustful professional and an admirable hard worker. During the spring semester of 2013 I had the great opportunity to work closely with Miss Baranowska. She was assigned by the Department of Hispanic Studies to assist me as a writing aid for my students of the survey of Spanish Literature that 1 taught. The course was designed to read and comprehend a wide range of authors and major works of Spanish Peninsular Literature from the Middle Ages to the 20th Century. Magdalena met with students regularly to help them improve their academic writing abilities since they had to tum in three papers during the semester. All of my students that met her for help were not only very happy with the results, but especially confident about the skills that Magdalena passed on to them. Magdalena is an ideal candidate for any Spanish department. Also, I think you would find in her a collegial and generous member of a community. She is engaging and inclusive in conversation and discussion, and is the first to make sure that everyone is comfortable and at ease.

En calidad de profesora titular de literatura y cultura norteamericana de la Universidad de Salamanca, es un placer recomendar a Magdalena Baranowska. Da Magdalena Baranowska ha sido estudiante mía en la licenciatura de Filología inglesa, donde ha demostrado que se trata de un alumna excelente, siempre ávida de conocimiento y de profundizar tanto en los contenidos como en los paradigmas críticos discutidos en clase. Se trata de una pensadora analítica e independiente, que conoce plenamente lo que significa la ética del trabajo. A su capacidad intelectual me gustaría añadir su madurez emocional, su impecable hábito de trabajo, su responsabilidad, y su respeto hacia profesores y demás alumnos. Por todas estas razones, es un placer para mi poder recomendar a Magdalena Baranowska para cualquier puesto de responsabilidad educativa o investigadora. No me cabe ninguna duda de que superará con creces cualquier expectativa académica pues se trata de una candidata óptima.

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation in support of Magdalena Baranowska. I worked with Magdalena as Teaching Fellow Supervisor of Intermediate Spanish II during the spring of 2013. Magdalena’s commitment, reliability, and professionalism made her an invaluable asset to students and fellow instructors alike. I have no doubt that she would quickly become an integral part of any Hispanics department. Magdalena joined the Hispanic Studies faculty in September 2012 as a Visiting Teaching Associate, and I had the chance to collaborate with her professionally during the following semester. Magdalena was one of three TA’s in HISP400, a second-semester intermediate course designed to move students to a more sophisticated level of understanding and expression through vocabulary enrichment, more accurate manipulation of verb tenses and moods, and sharpening of communicative skills within the domains of grammar, literature, and culture. Instructor meetings were always rewarding and productive, as Magdalena regularly contributed original activities and PowerPoint presentations with grammar instruction and practice. Whether we were discussing the subjunctive or The Motorcycle Diaries, Magdalena was eager to share material that revealed expertise in a student-centered model of language instruction based on logically-sequenced communicative tasks. Magdalena was clearly comfortable in the role of leader and innovator during our TA meetings, and her collegiality added much to the course. Magdalena was originally assigned two sections of HISP400; however, one of the sections was closed due to insufficient enrollment, and Magdalena was asked to assist with two literature survey courses as a writing tutor. While I was not directly involved with this latter course, I believe this sudden change of dudes merits mention as it supposed an increased workload for Magdalena, who now had to prepare for one course and make herself available for tutoring and instruction for two sections of a second course as well. Despite any inconvenience this may have caused, Magdalena immediately opened lines of communication with the instructors of the literature course to ask how she could best assist them, and she remained equally committed and available to students of both courses throughout the semester. Given the aforementioned it is my sincere belief that Magdalena would successfully fill a teaching position at any university, and I am pleased to offer my most enthusiastic recommendation on behalf of my esteemed colleague.
Graduate Teaching Assistant in Hispanic Studies at Brown University
Magdalena is highly intelligent, mature beyond her years, and enthusiastically dedicated to learning everything she can about the American and English, as well as Spanish and Latin American language, literature, and civilization. She possesses a thirst for knowledge and a work ethic found in very few graduate students. Her Honors and GPA, multiple, successful academic experiences, and her demonstrated excellence in English and Spanish all attest to the fact that Magdalena is an exceptional graduate student. At no time is Magdalena ever satisfied with her growing English and Spanish proficiency or her impressively high grades. She always looks to improve and learn more. She has chosen to move to the U.S. and teach Spanish to graduate and undergraduate students at the prestigious Brown University. As a result of her hard work, high intelligence, and life’s experience, Magdalena is truly multilingual and multicultural.

Rewelacyjna Pani tłumacz języka hiszpańskiego. Jedna z najlepszych, z jakimi miałem okazję współpracować. Doskonale radzi sobie w stresujących sytuacjach. Polecam.

Magdalena was selected for the position of Lecturer of Spanish in our department from a broad and deep pool of applicants. Her background as a Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Salamanca (Spain) provided her with excellent training in Spanish language, literature, and culture, which she has successfully taught in our department. Indeed, to date, she has taught 200-level Spanish courses (Spanish 201 and 202) and key courses in grammar and composition (Spanish 301), and Spanish Conversation for Professionals (Spanish 303B). The latter is a difficult course to teach given that most faculty are not trained in this area and there is a lack of appropriate materials. Undaunted, Magdalena often created her own materials for the course, some of which were based on her professional experience as a translator. Other resources she adapted from online formats such as videos, audio segments, games, and other worthy and helpful pieces. Indeed, with respect to teaching at the 200-level, our curriculum utilizes several different multi-media and online formats integrated into the in-class and out-of-class experience. Magdalena is very adept with technology in teaching and quickly was able to not only learn but also master the different tools we were using. Overall, her abilities with computer-aided language learning are very high and she has even sought out additional training through the Center of Excellence in Learning and Teaching by attending relevant workshops. Magdalena came to Iowa State from Brown, a fine institution with a respected undergraduate program in Spanish. Before that, Magdalena was undertaking PHD research in Salamanca. However, Magdalena is eager to improve in all instances. As I am sure she will inform you, she has voluntarily observed others’ classes and invited senior professors into her classroom in an effort to constantly improve. As a whole, Magdalena is a confident, innovative, and dedicated instructor who cares deeply for her students and seeks excellence in their work. We are very pleased to have had the opportunity to work with her.

I am writing to recommend Magdalena Baranowska, a highly qualified Spanish language instructor who is currently a Visiting Teaching Associate (from Salamanca, Spain) in the Department of Hispanic Studies at Brown University. I have served as Magda’s supervisor in Intermediate Spanish II and observed one of her Spanish language classes. I am also supervising Magda in her work as a writing tutor for our introductory Spanish and Latin American literature courses this semester. I have worked closely with Magda throughout the current academic year and feel confident in my assessment of her strengths and abilities. Magda prepares her language classes carefully and readily communicates her enthusiasm for all aspects of Hispanic culture. She typically prepares a logical sequence of activities designed to promote and develop communication skills in Spanish while maintaining student interest and involvement. Never content to simply follow a text or a prescribed curriculum, Magda works to achieve a balance of grammar review, skills development, and class discussion. For the class that I observed, Magda prepared a power-point with several activities to guide her students’ discussion of the film Diarios de moto, scaffolding the exercises carefully in order to include vocabulary review, structured and less structured preterite/imperfect review, and finally more open-ended activities for which students were required to fill in information gaps and negotiate meaning. Students were lively and fully engaged throughout the 80-minute class period. Student evaluations of Magda’s classes give testimony to her talent and dedication, making allusions to her ability to establish a productive and comfortable classroom dynamic and provide all students with the support they need. For her work as a writing tutor and consultant, Magda has provided students with careful written guidelines and she has established a modus operandi that works smoothly and efficiently for over 40 students who meet with her regularly to review their essay drafts. She has been an invaluable asset for our advanced level Spanish students, helping them to structure and support their written arguments and to become aware of grammatical issues that impede their ability to communicate clearly. I know Magdalena Baranowska as a pleasant, hard-working, and responsible young woman who now understands and comfortably navigates the U.S. educational system. Magda will be an asset to any department or program fortunate enough to hire her, and I am pleased to offer my enthusiastic recommendation.
Beth W. Bauer,
Senior Lecturer in Hispanic Studies at Brown University
It is a true pleasure to write in support of Magdalena Baranowska’s application to your institution. I have the pleasure of supervising Magdalena as an instructor of Intermediate Spanish I at Brown University and I know her as an exceptionally strong teacher and colleague. She will be an outstanding teacher in your program and I therefore recommend her most highly. As an undergraduate, Magdalena was highly intelligent, mature beyond her years and enthusiastically dedicated to learning everything she could about the Spanish language and culture. She possessed a thirst for knowledge and a work ethic found in very few undergraduates. At no time was Magdalena ever satisfied with her growing Spanish proficiency or her impressively high grades. Magdalena always looks to improve and learn more! Magdalena’s Honors and GPA, multiple, successful academic experiences and her demonstrated excellence in Spanish (she received a scholarship of collaboration from Salamanca University) all attest to the fact that Magdalena was an exceptional undergraduate and is now an exceptional graduate student. However, Magdalena was not satisfied with her record. Magdalena chose to move to the U.S. and teach as a Teaching Associate. As a result of her hard work, high intelligence and life’s experience, Magdalena is truly multilingual and multicultural. I have taught communicative language pedagogy to Spanish teachers of the English language and bilingual programs in Spain. I currently collaborate with Brown’s Sheridan Center for Teaching Learning as a Teaching Consultant, and I am the Teaching Fellow course supervisor for HISP 300, the course Magdalena instructs. I know that Magdalena Baranowska possesses the intelligence, the maturity and the drive to be a highly successful educator. While participating in your program, she will be an exceptional role model and leader. She will serve as a model of the high quality of your program for others to see. For all these reasons, I most highly recommend Magdalena Baranowska for employment at your institution.

Magdalena Baranowska was a student of mine at the Master program in Translation and Intercultural Mediation in Professional Environments (The European Master’s in Translation) in the “Legal Translation: English” class carried out at the University of Salamanca between 2009 and 2011. She always showed a great deal of interest in the English language and its implications for translation. Her attitude to her work was always very positive and she contributed to helping to create a friendly and relaxed atmosphere so essential to language translation and strategy acquisition. From my experience of her both class and class social activity she mixes well and is a person very charming, kind and considerate. I have no hesitation whatsoever of recommending her for any work involving translation because she has always shown herself to be a very mature, capable and smart person.

Es un placer escribir para recomendar a Magdalena Baranowska, una excelente profesora de español e intérprete con quien tuve el placer de trabajar durante la primavera de 2013. Me parece que representa un equilibrio ejemplar entre la habilidad para la enseñanza y la perspicacia de la capacidad lingüística, que además complementa con su trabajo duro y su voluntad de ayudar a la comunidad. A continuación, permítame entrar en más detalles de porqué la recomiendo con entusiasmo. En el otoño de 2012, tuve la primera ocasión que para apreciar las habilidades de Magdalena, cuando llegó por primera vez a trabajar como docente asociada en el Departamento de Estudios Hispánicos de la Universidad de Brown, donde soy profesor visitante. Cuando la conocí me impresionó no sólo por su entusiasmo, sino también por sus múltiples habilidades lingüísticas, así como por sus competencias docentes. Nos demostró desde el inicio del año escolar que es una profesional admirable. Afortunadamente, durante el semestre de primavera de 2013 tuve la oportunidad de trabajar estrechamente con la señorita Baranowska, ya que el Departamento de Estudios Hispánicos le asignó auxiliar la escritura de los estudiantes de mi curso intensivo de literatura española. Este curso está diseñado como un mapa comprensivo de una amplia variedad de autores y grandes obras de la literatura peninsular española desde la Edad Media hasta el siglo 20. Magdalena se reunió con los estudiantes regularmente para ayudarles a mejorar sus habilidades de escritura académica, ya que tenían que entregar tres ensayos durante el semestre. Todos mis alumnos que buscaron su ayuda, no sólo terminaron muy contentos con los resultados, sino sobre todo ganaron mucha confianza en su trabajo, gracias a las habilidades que obtuvieron de Magdalena. Me parece que Magdalena Baranowska es un candidato ideal para cualquier departamento de español. Además, creo que aparte de una buena profesional, es una persona muy generosa con la comunidad a la que pertenece. Siempre es un placer compartir y debatir con ella, y siempre es la primera en preocuparse por el bienestar de los demás. No dude en ponerse en contacto conmigo directamente para cualquier comentario adicional que necesite a este respecto.
