I teach History, Geography and ToK at the Bavarian International School and am accredited both by Yad Vashem to teach the Holocaust and by the nearby Dachau Memorial Site as an official guide from where I have invited Holocaust survivors to my school and had students take part in events, including the ceremony for the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the camp where they spoke before Angela Merkel and other distinguished guests.
    I am an examiner for the IBO and have served as IBDP coordinator and Head of Humanities at the Beijing World Youth Academy. I was named ITC Teacher of the Year on the recommendation of Cambridge University, received the Outstanding Teacher Award from the University of Chicago, and have been featured in IB World.  I also featured in the film Gyantse 1904, appeared in the documentary 1914: The Invasion of Belgium and held a workshop at the 2012 ECIS Annual Conference. I have conducted school trips throughout Europe and China and regularly give tours of Munich.

The Palaestra

Like a modern Caesar, Benito Mussolini strides past the Ara Pacis, an “altar of peace” commissioned by the Roman Senate in 13 B.C. to honor Emperor Augustus (27 B.C.-14 A.D.). In 1902, the German scholar Eugen Petersen proposed a reconstruction of the partially excavated monument after studying photos of fragments from a number of European museums. In 1937–1938, Mussolini had the rest of the Ara Pacis excavated; then he had the monument reconstructed following Petersen’s model—all to celebrate the “Romanitá” (Romanness) of the Fascist regime.
