GREENVILLE, S.C. (August 29, 2022) – Fleur Weathers joined the Bob Jones University faculty this fall as an instructor in the Division of World Languages & Cultures in the College of Arts and Science.
She earned a BA in Spanish from BJU and an MEd in world languages from Colorado State University–Pueblo. Weathers also has a post-graduate diploma in teaching (secondary) from Bethlehem Tertiary Institute.
Weathers previously served as international student academic dean and Spanish and ESL teacher at Nga Tawa Diocesan School in New Zealand and ESL teacher at Osaka Kunei Girls’ School in Japan. She taught ESL, English literature, music and French at Home Academy in China.
“Fleur brings a rich intercultural background to the Division of World Languages and Cultures. Having taught different languages on various continents and in a variety of countries, she brings both teaching expertise and cross-cultural adaptability to our campus and the classroom,” said Dr. Jeremy Patterson, Division of World Languages and Culture chair. “We are thrilled to have her on our world languages and cultures faculty.”
This academic year, Weathers will teach Beginning Spanish I and II and Intermediate Spanish I and II.
“I am excited to begin teaching at Bob Jones University and invest in the students!,” said Weathers. “By God’s grace, I received a great education at BJU and experienced fantastic teachers in my Spanish program; and I hope to be the kind of teacher that equips and inspires this generation of students to graduate and serve the Lord with their lives wherever He may call them.”
Weathers and her husband, Matthew, have two sons. They attend Hampton Park Baptist Church.
