I received my BA in History at Manhattanville College in 2011. In addition to my degree, I continue to study American History as a graduate student on this fascinating subject.
When I graduated from college, I received a minor in art history. I have a particular love of this subject and I was fortunate enough to have a great aptitude for the subject. For three years, I spent my spring break trips in Italy, Venice, Rome and Tuscany respectively. The area of art history that I am very proficient in is the art of the Early and High Renaissance. I believe that while a student can learn about art from a textbook or the internet, they must attend a museum to see the real impact of art to have a full and meaningful experience.
My interest in the Greek and Roman Classics goes all the way back to 6th Grade History when I first studied Ancient Greece. Since then, I have read widely in Greek philosophy (Socrates, Plato, Aristotle) and Roman History (Livy, Tacitus). One of my great joys in teaching the classics has been introducing children to the epic poetry of Homer and Virgil. I have recently started teaching this subject in school.
I have taken more classes on this period of Continental history than any other. When I graduated from Manhattanville in 2011, I received the Gerard Thormann Award for Excellence in European History for my successful study of European history and my dissertation on the Henrican Reformation of England.
Since taking a course in college, I have begun to study the religions of the World. I have particular interest in the Judeo-Christian-Islamic religions of the West, and I am studying the Eastern religions of India and China in more depth. I feel that when one is studying history, one needs to have a better understanding of the world's religions. It would be my pleasure to introduce to your children the fascinating world of religion.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in History and I am well versed in the subject of World History. My particular area of concentration is European and Western History.
