Dr. Teresa Boucher began teaching Spanish at Boise State University in 1994, and is now chair of the Department of World Languages. She earned her B.A. 'magna cum laude' with high honors in Spanish from Dartmouth College, holds three master's degrees - two in Spanish and one in French - and studied abroad on four occasions in Spain and in France. Her academic career then led her to Princeton University where she earned her Ph.D. in Romance Languages and Literatures. Dr. Boucher has accomplished much in the department, including creating the minor programs in Chinese Studies and American Sign Language (ASL), establishing a scholarship fund for each language, and leading the department in proposing around fifty courses for inclusion in the new Foundational Studies Program. In addition, she has served as a peer reviewer, an editorial consultant for Wiley & Sons Publishers, a member of the Court Interpreter Subcommittee for the Idaho Supreme Court, and an independent evaluator on behalf of the Idaho Humanities Council for “Fiesta Idaho: A Hispanic Folk Life Festival".
