Bonnie Glantz moved to Spokane to teach at SFCC in 2004 and subsequently fell in love with both the college and the Spokane area. In 2012, after 20 years teaching Spanish, Bonnie stepped up to interim dean to fill a vacancy. Much to her surprise, she found that she really enjoyed the job, so she applied and was offered the permanent dean position in 2013.
Bonnie’s favorite thing about the job is the opportunity make positive changes at the college and to take care of the faculty, staff, and students of the programs under her supervision (Fine Arts, Music, Audio Engineering, Interior Design, Graphic Design, Photography, Digital Media Production, and Journalism). She loves that the job is complex and different every day, and she’s really proud of the work that is being done in the division.
She misses teaching Spanish, especially the daily contact with the students in the classroom, but fortunately has been “adopted” by the students, faculty, and staff in the Visual & Performing Arts.
