Biographical Statement:

Prior to becoming a devoted professor, Dr. Metallo and his wife, Joyce, served as missionaries with YWAM. He is fluent in Spanish and has traveled extensively throughout Central America. During the summer, Dr. Metallo travels to Antigua, where he teaches a course on the Politics of Latin America. Throughout the school year, he and his wife frequently host upper division students for dinner. Dr. Metallo also serves as the faculty adviser for Pi Sigma Alpha, the National Political Science Honor Society. When not haranguing his poor, unsuspecting students, Dr. Metallo enjoys reading, jogging, bird watching (he is still searching for the elusive quetzal, the national bird of Guatemala), photography, and traveling the world. He also enjoys a good cup of coffee and has been rumored to be the dictator of a small Latin American country.
