“On the one hand, I’m really happy because I miss teaching in-person,” Alberto Bruzos Moro told The Daily Princetonian. “On the other hand, I’m worried because, you know, having a kid at home who is immunocompromised, it is a little concerning. At least until he can get the vaccine.”

On Princeton’s campus, Alberto Bruzos Moro is the director of the Spanish language program, slated to teach two seminars this fall. Off campus, he’s a father to an immunocompromised nine-year-old son.
