Research Assistant Professor and Language Program Director of Italian
I have been teaching Italian language and culture in the United States since 2002, experiencing a variety of different academic settings. What I find in all language students, beyond their cultural background and their ultimate educational goal, is the desire to engage with language at an experiential level. I have found that bringing to class elements of culture, literature, film, theater, and authentic readings makes the learning experience meaningful and deep.
