“I have taught in different states, in both public and private universities, and I do my best to not only teach the language, but the Hispanic culture as well,” Leveziel said. “So, when I found out my peers wanted to recognize me with this award, I was very honored.”
His commitment to the Hispanic culture and education also has been lauded by his colleagues at Augusta State.
“Dr. Leveziel is so deserving of this award because he constantly works hard and unselfishly for the good of his students and for the advancement of the Hispanic community,” said Jana Sandarg, professor of Spanish in ASU’s Department of English and Foreign Languages.
Leveziel is a member of several organizations including the Steering Committee of FLAIR and the Modern Language Association. A member of the ASU faculty since 2008, Leveziel earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Caen, a master’s degree from Washington University in St. Louis, and a doctoral degree from Middlebury College.
FLAIR is one of the first foreign language alliances in the state of Georgia. The organization was founded in 1985 to serve the CSRA and is supported by the Department of English and Foreign Languages at ASU.
