Dr. Lee Glen (Assistant Professor of Spanish)

Dr. Lee Glen first taught Spanish at UD as an instructor in 1987 while she was working on her doctorate in Hispanic Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. Upon the completion of her PhD in 1995, Dr. Glen joined the department full time. She earned the admiration of her students in her courses on Spanish language, literature, and composition. Aside from teaching, she supervised student teachers in the Foreign Language Education program and was a mentor to students in the McNair Scholars program. As she comments, "I have truly enjoyed my time at Delaware, working with wonderful students and amazing colleagues." During her retirement, Dr. Glen looks forward to spending time with family and friends (both human and furry!) and to travel. She would love to return to music and theater, and she hopes to try new things, like taking a drawing or painting class. She also aspires to participate more often as a leader in spirituality groups and to continue her volunteer work as a translator both abroad (in the Dominican Republic) and locally (at a women's shelter). Dr. Glen declares, "I am excited to be on this journey!"

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."
