I have lived, worked and/or studied in England, Belgium, France, Italy, Spain, Mexico and the United States.  I love being surrounded by history, walking in the footsteps of historical authors, and sharing that joy with my students, inspiring them to do the same through study abroad.  I specialise in poetry, theatre and art of the Spanish Golden Age and am most interested in themes of identity (how we define ourselves and how we present ourselves to the world) and responsibility (both in terms of what we owe to each other and to the environment in which we live).  I teach all levels of language and literature, but most especially enjoy teaching poetry.
