Neysa Goodman has been part of the World Languages and Cultures department since 2003. Neysa loves to teach – especially to those students who are new to French or Spanish: she delights in helping the burgeoning speaker and global thinker emerge. She loves cinema and music (with a special place in her heart for French contributions in both categories), and tries to see all the Oscar Best Picture nominees each year. She studied at both Drake University (BA) and the University of Minnesota (MA), but she is now a fully converted Cyclone fan. Go, State!
