Senior Lector, Department of Spanish and Portuguese
Sibyl Alexandrov teaches Spanish at Yale University, and has led and participated in many classes and workshops on language pedagogy, particularly for heritage speakers. In teaching, she focuses on providing materials that will give insight into Hispanic cultures while also encouraging students to make connections with their own worlds.
Alexandrov grew up in Mexico near the American border, and attended school in both countries, which shaped her understanding of how language and culture impact individuals and communities. She received a Master’s degree in Italian from Harvard University.
