Kristen Rudd on the Impact of the Classics
Kristen Rudd is an educator who offers online classes and tutoring services for middle and high school students. She teaches the Dante Atrium for the CiRCE Institute and is the founder and director of the Triangle Classical Forum and the Independent Classical Educator Fellowship and is the brains and heart behind #100daysofDante, #everydayOvid, and #ThisIsEpic—Facebook groups to help people read classics in community.
Kristen holds a Master of Arts in Teaching in Classical Education through the Templeton Honors College at Eastern University where she wrote her master’s thesis on Dante’s Divine Comedy. Kristen graduated from the Circe Institute Apprenticeship program in 2019 and is a Circe-certified master classical teacher. An established writer, Kristen’s published work can be found online at The Circe Institute, The Torrey Gazette, The Center for Lit, and Fathom Mag.
In her spare time (ha!), she writes fiction and poetry, lifts heavy weights, eats tacos, and gushes about Dido, Queen of Carthage, to anyone who will listen.
