Associate Professor of Humanities Cynthia Rostankowski

Nominated by Christopher Queen, ’98 Humanities/Spanish

Professor Cynthia Rostankowski is my very inspirational person. Her lectures paint vivid verbal pictures of the subject matter she covers. Her assignments are challenging, yet to the point, capable of evaluating both a student’s broad and specific understanding of the subject. Professor Rostankowski’s passion for teaching humanities shines through and her continued selection for the SJSU Salzburg Program demonstrates her level of professionalism. She has had an immense impact on my life and I am grateful to have had her as professor.

    I am a middle school teacher because of Professor Rostankowski. Her passion for education, higher learning, critical thinking, and pursuit of the “ah-ha” moment makes her a facilitator unmatched in the field of education. San Jose State University is brightened by her efforts and achievements.
