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.
Dr. Nathan Maxfield
Thank you for being a great mentor during this whole process! I have found all of your advice relevent and impactful. Your guidance on my thesis has allowed me to grow and learn in the area of Fluency. I have enjoyed the process and you minimized my stress level by being active every step of the way!
Dr. Belgrad's intellect, patience, and teaching ability have influenced my work and how I conduct myself in the classroom. The lessons I have learned from Dr. Belgrad will forever shape my professional career. Thank you!
