Hello! I’m Sondra Rapoport, your friendly neighborhood Roman Historian. I taught with Harvard University's Dept. of Classics for 6 years as a Head Teaching Fellow. I taught Medieval Culture, Roman Games (gladiators), and The Rome of Augustus, for which I was nominated for the Levenson Teaching Award and won awards for distinction in teaching each semester I taught with Harvard. Now, I homeschool my son and I greatly enjoy adapting my knowledge and classes designed for university level to each of his grade levels. On of my goals is to bring Classics into the modern world.
