Jose Saldivar

Jose Saldivar
The University of Texas - Pan American

One characteristic of an outstanding professor is the ability to connect with students. Jose Saldivar exhibits this quality in interactions with his students. At an institution with over 90% Mexican-American enrollment, Jose Saldivar integrates culture and ethnicity into his courses through readings, discussion, and self-reflective assignments. He helps his students to understand how their cultural and language heritage interact with their identities as students. Saldivar is an example of a successful Mexican-American teacher, and his evaluations are testament of that fact. He consistently receives ratings of good or excellent from 97-100% of his students. It is Jose's ability to make students part of the learning process through personal connections and peer activities that makes him a superior educator.
