I teach courses in Greek and Latin languages and literatures, as well as in mythology and women in the ancient world.  In the Honors Program, I teach Epic and Plato courses for first-semester Freshmen.  My current research is on Homer's Iliad and its relationship to geometric pottery of the 8th century before our era.  For more information on me, my courses, and my research click on the links below.
