Latin 506 (Summer 2012)
I am a fourth year graduate student at the University of Texas. I specialize in Roman archaeology, domestic architecture, ancient horsemanship, epigraphy and Pompeian graffiti. While I have tutored Latin for many years, my first semester in the classroom was this summer. I had a great time teaching Latin 506 and eagerly look forward to another semester of Latin 506 this year.
Something unique about my teaching style is my emphasis on spoken Latin. I also try to emphasize how antiquity is relevant to the modern world in my classes. My greatest joy in the classroom is when I see students make connections between the peoples of the past and a current event or situation. Seeing their excitement over antiquity truly makes my job worthwhile.
