Over the past twenty years she has focused on the teaching of Latin at varied levels, including AP* Latin Literature and AP* Vergil. This experience led her to publish, in conjunction with Phyllis B.

She has contributed an article to the AP* Central website “Translation in the AP Latin Classroom: A Targeted Approach.” She holds a Master of Arts degree in Classics from Wesleyan University and teaches at Avon High School in Avon, Connecticut.

Other publications include “Ovid’s Last World,” Classical and Modern Literature, 1992; “Shifting Ground: The Metamorphoses of Ovid’s Tiresias in Christine de Pisan’s Le Livre de la Mutacion de Fortune and T. S. Eliot’s The Waste Land,” forthcoming in Classical and Modern Literature; and “Educating Paula: A Proposed Curriculum for Raising a Fourth Century Christian Infant,” forthcoming in Hesperia. She is a Senior Lecturer in Classics at Dartmouth College, and teaches in the Women’s and Gender Studies and Master of Arts in Liberal Studies programs there.
