Blanco teaches a variety of Spanish courses, including Elementary Spanish I and II, Intermediate Spanish I and II, Spanish American Literature Pre 18th Century, Spanish American Literature Post 18th Century, Advanced Oral Spanish, Advanced Spanish Writing, and Spanish Literature in Translation. She has also developed a specialty class in Latin American Culture, Civilization and Politics, and is currently developing online Spanish courses for CSU Online. In 2015, she also worked as part of a team which was awarded a grant titled Latino Americans: 500 Years of History by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Blanco’s campus involvement includes chairing the Cultural Diversity Committee. In the summer of 2017, she took students for a Study Abroad trip to Spain. Presently she is involved with CSU students on a mission trip to Puerto Rico to work as a disaster relief team.
“She is certainly a shining example of CSU’s mission of ‘Promoting Academic Excellence in a Christian Environment’ and is an amazing role model for our students,” says Dr. Jacqueline Fish, Vice President of Academic Affairs. “She teaches full time, stays actively involved in her church, leads her family, and continually volunteers her time in the community. What a blessing it is to have Professor Blanco on our faculty at CSU.”
