I am fascinated by the Greco-Roman world; its history, literature, culture, and languages. I have an M.A. in Classics and have taught Roman history, as well as other Classics related subjects, to a range of ages and skill levels online and in a traditional classroom. This course is meant to be fun! I have read the Percy Jackson series many times, so I thought it would be fun to combine my two passions into this exciting class that explores the world of Percy Jackson through classics.
