"Since my 2001 study abroad program in Greece and Italy, one of my teaching objectives evolves from my passion for the Greek and Roman culture, literature, and philosophy. I want students to be as excited about the authors and their works as I am! I want them to understand how little the core of humanity has changed; therefore, they can learn from these ancient, medieval, and early modern writers and philosophers. I don't want to just teach content; I want to teach students to see how reading and writing can influence their lives."
