Mercedes de Arana Hyman was born and raised in Spain. She teaches lower level Spanish classes. Ms. Hyman participated in the film "Twice as Bright". This film was an honor thesis short film from one of our students, Leo Hageman, and was part of the Cucalorus Film Festival in 2009. Inspired by her students, she wrote a collection of original poems that was published by Francis Marion University in the Fall 2011. She taught her first class online last summer and she is looking forward to repeating this experience this coming summer as well as going to Spain to visit her family and friends. Ms. Hyman continues her teaching path and now (2021) she is deeply involved with the nursing program, as she teaches nurses and students in the health field Spanish in an asynchronous format. For her, her students are “her heroes” as we deal with COVID-19.
