I have been teaching for almost 20 years, predominantly teaching Italian, at the Secondary level . It's a passion. It's the love of and for the Italian language and culture that gives me the desire and great joy of sharing it with others.
I earned my undergraduate degree in Italian Studies and continued post graduate work in Education. I later earned my graduate degree in Liberal Studies. It was after receiving my Master's degree from the University of Chicago that my love for all things Italian grew even more. I saw how clearly Italy and its history connected to so many other subjects and topics--it's Connection that inspired me to create this course. I hope to encourage travel to Italy and infuse a knowledge of Italy's landscape, its people, its food, artists, culture, and language. Benvenuti e buon divertimento! Welcome and have fun!
