Michelle Green, Major in Classics (Class of 1998)

Michelle Green graduated from UIC with a major in Classics with a specialization in Latin and a second major in History, and she presently teaches Latin at Evanston Township High School. Immediately after graduation in 1998, Michelle pursued further studies in education and history and earned an MAT degree in history at UIC. As a member of the teaching staff at Evanston Township High School, she has created a Latin Club, sponsors a trip to Italy every other year, and has been awarded several times among the Who's Who Among American High School Teachers by her students. Michelle feels that the diverse community at UIC facilitated her ability to teach Latin in the similarly diverse community found in Evanston. She has been able to use her experiences from UIC to help her students connect with the ancient culture and language.
