Andrew Siebengartner

Andrew Siebengartner has been teaching Latin and Greek to students in grades 6–12 at St. Ann’s School in Brooklyn for seven years, while also completing a PhD in Classics at Princeton University. He is writing on the role of appetite and satisfaction in Greek and Latin epic poetry. Through Princeton’s Prison Teaching Initiative, he has also been teaching Latin at a prison in Bordentown, NJ. Before beginning the PhD program, Siebengartner spent a year in Greece as a student at the American School of Classical Studies, learning and practicing archaeology around the country. He returns to Greece as often as he can, but these days he is more regularly in Rome, where he teaches each spring and has begun working for the Paideia Institute’s Living Latin in Rome summer course. He feels fortunate to study the ancient Greek and Roman world on the ground, and wishes to provide that experience to as many students as possible.
