Adjunct Instructor of Italian
As a teacher of Italian language (college and secondary school) my emphasis has been on enabling students to communicate in the language and on making them familiar with important aspects of the uniquely rich Italian culture, which spans from the classical Greek-Roman world to the splendor of Neo-Humanism and Renaissance, all the way to our modern world.
Born, raised and educated in Italy, teaching my native language and exposing my students to the great cultural heritage of Italy has constantly motivated me year after year.
