At the present I teach French, Italian, and occasionally Latin at
Loyola University
in Baltimore. Here's a link to my page there. 

For many years I taught Italian at the Peabody Institute in Baltimore.
One of my students gave me this great collage illustrating  various ways people perceive the  Music Major.

I got my Masters and Ph.D. in
Comparative Literature from Penn State, and managed to see only one football game in my time there (actually two half games).  I sat in a booth next to Joe Paterno's once at a local pizza parlor.

I did my undergraduate in Classical Philology at the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium, a.k.a. fons sapientiae, the fountain of wisdom.   Fonske is their mascotte.

Before that I went to Saint Ignatius College in Antwerp, now part of the University of Antwerp.

And before that I went to Franciscus Xaverius College. Do I know Jesuits?
