As both a student and an educator, I recognize that education is largely a collaborative and contextual exercise. We each bring with us our own strengths, challenges, hopes, and ambitions and it is important that we are open about these, so as to recognize how they might help and impede our learning! My experience in the contextual exercise of education is primarily in the high school setting, where I have taught history and literature. However, I have also worked with younger students and those with learning differences in a variety of different subjects. I am both a teacher and a continuing scholar. Thus, I recognize the need to apply some of my own pedagogical ideas to my ongoing studies! I am inspired by students that are able to discover something of themselves within the subjects they are working on.
I hold an MTS degree from Villanova University, where I specialized in Christianity in late antiquity. I present on a variety of topics regarding history and Christianity in antiquity at conferences, and will begin doctoral work next year in Syriac studies. I look forward to learning alongside you!
