Hello! I’m Sondra Rapoport, your friendly neighborhood Roman Historian and archaeologist. I live for 3 months of the year in Rome. It's my favorite city. I taught with Harvard University's Dept. of Classics for 6 years as a Head Teaching Fellow. I taught classes on The Rome of Augustus and Roman Games 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. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
