I earned my BA from Wayne State University, my MA from Columbia University, and did post graduate work at the University of California, Santa Cruz, in philosophy and Humanities. I also did postgraduate work at the American Academy in Rome where I studied Roman architecture. I spent two summers at Tufts University studying classical Greek. I love teaching Latin and have spent almost my entire academic life in a classroom. I still work with students who are interested in preparing for the Latin AP Exam. My husband and I have 5 children between us and 17 grandchildren. Life has been good to us, and we are eternally grateful for our blessings.
