Faculty & Staff Interviews

This Interview With Dmitri Levine, FASPS's Assistant Director of Auxiliary Programs, Was Recorded January 22, 2020

Lia: What were you doing in life before you came to work at FASPS?

Dmitri: My bachelor’s degree is in world language education, with a specialty in French. I taught high school French in Chicago Public Schools for about two years and then decided that that wasn’t really where I wanted to be. I wanted to explore other options, so I took a year off. I worked in a tutoring center for a little bit, and then I said, you know what? I’m going to get my master’s degree! So I ended up pursuing a master’s degree in applied linguistics and instructional design, in other words, learning how to teach French and how to create online curricula, manage learning centers, things like that.
