About Me

Education: Erelene Christensen, a skilled & inspiring teacher at Hilltop High School (Chula Vista, CA) helped me first want to use my intellect and heart for more than praise & recognition. Great teachers at UC Santa Cruz and Trinity College, Dublin, trained me in Greek, Latin, history, & literary analysis, allowing me to excel in the study of Classical Antiquity. The erudite faculty of Brown University equipped & encouraged me to teach and publish. Along the way many peers have contributed greatly to my growth.

Engagement: In addition to teaching Latin at D'Evelyn since 1997, I have served as Foreign Language Dept. Manager since 2006. I have been the sponsor of numerous student clubs. From 2009-2012 I served as a Director of the D'Evelyn Education Foundation. In June of 2018 I ended my second 3-year term on the Steering Committee.

Honors:

Vice President of the Colorado Classics Association, 2018-present

Co-President of the Colorado Classics Association, 2014-2016

UNC Outstanding World Language Teacher Award- 2012

Jamin B. Wilson Excellence in Education Award- 2009

Boettcher Foundation Teacher Recognition Award- 2001
