Brendon earned his PhD in Classics from Stanford University, after receiving his MA in Latin from Bryn Mawr College, and his BA from Reed College. For more than 25 years in higher education, he has taught all levels of Latin and ancient Greek language and literature, Roman culture, as well as European and American literary and intellectual history. This includes nine years as a professor at Wellesley College where he garnered the Apgar Award for Teaching Excellence, recognizing a faculty member who motivates students' interest, curiosity, and love of learning; proposes and applies new teaching concepts and methods; and serves as a mentor to stimulate students' intellectual development. He is currently on the board of trustees at the George Stevens Academy in Maine where he teaches Latin. Brendon aims to meet every student's unique needs and learning styles. He delights in that Aha! moment when his students achieve another level of understanding, whether in parsing a sentence or grasping how a metaphor works. When he isn't reading Latin, Brendon loves to fish, cook, and spend time with his family.
