Professional Profile

Davidson began teaching part time in the Department of English, Philosophy, and Modern Languages in 1994; she became a full-time instructor in 1998.  She received a B.A. in Spanish, and later, an M.A. in English from West Texas State University, before earning another M.A. in Spanish from Texas Tech University.

Prior to coming to WTAMU, Davidson taught Spanish at Canyon and Randall High Schools.  When she and her husband moved to Plano, she taught at Shepton High School until they moved back to "Buffalo Country," where she has been teaching for more than two decades.

Teaching and Related Service

Davidson teaches beginning- and intermediate-level Spanish courses, as well as an upper level course, Advanced Spanish, which is designed to help students develop listening, reading, and writing skills. She received a Teaching Excellence Award in 2004/05.

Davidson enjoys informal, out-of-classroom time with students in Spanish Conversation Lab and other events sponsored by the department. Developing relationships with students and colleagues has always been an important part of teaching for her.

Research and Creative Activity

Davidson enjoys Spanish translation. She has accompanied a group called A.C.T. (Applying Christ's Teachings) to Babicora, Chihuahua, Mexico, where she volunteered as an interpreter for dentists and medical doctors as they examined, diagnosed, and treated people in need of free services. She and her son have gone on mission trips to Acuña, Mexico, with Casas por Cristo, to help build houses. They also have accompanied The Word at Work to Belize to help support organizations that deal with domestic violence and extreme poverty.
