Growing Up In Venice!

ABOUT ME
My love of teaching developed through the years as I learned about pedagogy, curricular content and merging all of that with my passion for Venice and first hand knowledge as a resident of this incredible city.
 
We are all longing to be satisfied and look for an equilibrium between duties and passions. This is my inspiring energy; to pursue a more satisfying way to do my work and provide students with a deeper understanding and appreciation for Venice history and art. 

I am a life-long learner and lover of all things Venice! My joy derives from sharing the history and beauty of my city.
