Professor/Instructor
Ruth Huntley Bahr

Dr. Bahr taught me in 4 classes; 2 undergrad and 2 at the graduate level. I am a non-traditional second language student. At the beginning of school I struggled with confidence as I tried to ‘keep up’ with my younger classmates, funny as it may seem, at the end of grad school they were trying to keep up with me!. When I first approached Dr. Bahr as an undergrad, I didn’t really know who and what her position in the university was. I just knew she was someone I wanted to learn all I could from. When I came to her with concerns in passing the GRE she was encouraging and compassionate. I never felt judged by her; rather I felt a sense of trust and guidance. Dr. Bahr is one of the toughest professors I've ever met; she helped me reach academic goals I never thought I could. I read somewhere, “Some people cross our paths for just a moment in time, however, they leave us with a lifetime impression.” This is how I feel about Dr. Bahr and other professors at USF. There is a lasting impression of knowledge, understanding, and compassion within me that has always been there, only now it is stronger. I am looking forward to being a great clinician and someday mentor as I was mentored. Thank you, and God Bless.

Professor/Instructor
Dr. Nathan Maxfield

Thank you for being a great mentor during this whole process! I have found all of your advice relevent and impactful.

She is the mentor, colleague, instructor,and friend I aspire to be to my students.
