She holds a BA in Classics (summa cum laude) and PhD on Literary studies from the Universita’ della Calabria, MA in Teaching Classics and MA in teaching Italian from the Universita’ per Stranieri di Siena; she was a fellow of at the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae for two years. Her adventure as teacher started in 2005, at the Liceo Ginnasio Virgilio in Mantua, where she taught Latin and Ancient Greek, both with the traditional and natural approaches. After moving to California, she went back to teaching in public schools and started mentoring new Latin teachers from the San Francisco State Credentialing Program: she is proud of seeing three (so far) of her former students and advisees continuing studying Classics and becoming teachers as well.
