Faculty Profile: Professor David Beltran

I am a native Chicagoan, whose path has included growing up in the southwest side of Chicago, spending my middle school years in a small town in Mexico, graduating from a Chicago Public High School, to obtaining my M.A, from Loyola University Chicago. My research has revolved around Latin-American, Spanish, Latino Literature, and Heritage language pedagogy. 

At Loyola, I teach a variety of Spanish courses ranging from Spanish101 to composition and conversation Spanish courses. I also teach a literature course focusing on Chicago Latina and Latino authors.

As a Loyola alum, coming back to campus as an instructor has been a feeling of coming home.
