From Willowbrook to Attica: Delinquency in the Context of Disability (HONR248)
Professor Leone introduced challenging topics into a forum of discussion that pushed the boundaries of the traditional classroom in his Delinquency in the Context of Disability course. He encouraged students to come into class having done their own weekly research, and assigned tasks that included writing to a Maryland House of Delegates committee in Annapolis and The Baltimore Sun. He also took students on a number of field trips to detention facilities.
"Professor Leone's dedication to disability issues did not go unnoticed or unappreciated amongst his students. For me, personally, HONR248 played a large role in helping me decide that disability advocacy in the law is something I would like to pursue beyond college. His projects and assigned readings covered a wide range of topics in-depth, despite the constricting nature of spending only one semester in the class...
His encouragement of students to challenge their biases was the prevailing lesson, and it will stay with us all."

"Dr. Guerrero modeled such amazing intellectual brilliance in the classroom that we could not help to admire and aspire to it. ... We learned to consider each other serious academics and respect each other's work. Outside of the classroom, she mentored students who continuously sought her out for more instruction, advice, and support."
