Teacher Bio | Petra Petry
My name is Petra Petry and I am very excited to be your Italian teacher and cultural guide. People that already took my class know me well. I was born in Czech, but as a very young girl I was transplanted to a beautiful city of Venice, which I consider my hometown. My mother is still living there, so I go visit almost every year. I graduated from Venetian Ca’Foscari University with double major and Laurea Dottore in Languages Literature & History with emphasis on Cultural Studies. I have been teaching at College and University levels for past 16 years and I can’t believe that I have been with the non-profit Fondazione Italia for almost 10 years now. I am looking forward to teaching you Italian!
