About Amos

Amos Kasperek is a Professor of Spanish in the Division of World Languages & Cultures at Bob Jones University. After completing an MA in Spanish literature, culture, and linguistics at Saint Louis University's Madrid Campus (Spain), he continued his professional training at the University of Oklahoma, earning a PhD in Spanish with a primary concentration in 17th century Spanish drama and a secondary concentration in Spanish Pedagogy and Second Language Acquisition.

Originally from Los Angeles, Dr. Kasperek began studying Spanish in 8th grade while attending a small Christian school in central Missouri. The Lord used several mission trips to Mexico during high school to give him a strong burden both for missions and for Christian education. After graduating with a BS in Spanish Education from BJU, he began teaching Spanish at Bob Jones Academy in January of 2004. In August of 2007, he transitioned to teaching Spanish part-time in the high school and part-time at BJU. From 2009 to 2013 he worked as a graduate teaching assistant at OU while continuing his studies.

In addition to his teaching responsibilities, Dr. Kasperek serves as the Program Coordinator for the Spanish and Teaching World Language programs. He mantains active membership in the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) and serves as an ACTFL/CAEP Reviewer. He has presented numerous academic papers on Spanish literature at a variety of conferences across the United States, and serves as a conference speaker at state and regional teacher conventions, giving workshops on topics related to second language pedagogy and Christian education.
