Ms. Elizabeth (Lisa) Thibault (Instructor of German)
Lisa Thibault is retiring from UD after twenty-eight years of distinguished service as an instructor of German (and occasionally of French). She came to UD after earning her MA in German from the University of Maryland. During her time at the University, she was sequence supervisor of the 100-level German language courses and advisor to students who minor in German. A dedicated educator, she also supervised the German graduate teaching assistants. When asked about her plans for retirement, Lisa writes: "I will make my free-time activities my priorities." She looks forward to benefit from off-season travel and to spending more time at her beloved piano and singing with Schola cantorum, the UD town-and-gown choir. She adds, "It will be so nice to finish my book club selections in a leisurely fashion. With my ever-growing number of retired friends, I can now participate in mid-week field trips to Philly, D.C., or the beach, and maybe make them overnight excursions. (Doesn't this all sound lovely!) As I tell everyone who asks, I plan to do less, not more, and will surely spend plenty of time watching the grass grow."
