My broad aim, both professionally and personally, is to create a strong sense of community within the classroom so that we all learn from each other and grow together.

It is my hope that the solidarity forged within my classes can transcend a given semester and that students will remain engaged with the Italian language and culture in their immediate and long-term future. It is for this reason that I have undertaken two initiatives in particular: the Rome Study Program that I direct every summer and the Italian Drama Workshop, in which my greatest satisfaction comes from the enduring bond I build with students.
