Having joined in the German Program at Aquinas in 2008, Prof. Hojnacki has taught Introductory German courses (101, 102) and also tutored students in Intermediate German (201, 202). In addition to teaching, she is also a Ph.D. student at Michigan State University where she is currently taking courses in both German Studies and Language Learning and Technology. In 2010-2011 Prof. Hojnacki received the Max Kade Fellowship at MSU, which funded the implementation of a research project examining the effectiveness of technology to increase students' oral and written output in the foreign language classroom. As a high school teacher for many years she developed her teaching skills and as a student and teacher in Germany she was able to increase both her linguistic and cultural fluency.
