short biography icon Short Biography

Gerard earned all his degrees at Columbia University in the City of New York, where he also taught as a visiting assistant professor for two years after completing his Ph.D. He then moved to Atlanta where he was a tenure-track assistant professor of Classics at Georgia State University. He was denied tenure (on programmatic grounds) in 1996. He began teaching Latin on a part-time basis at Spelman College in Atlanta in 1998 and still does so. In 1999 he began teaching Latin for City Schools of Decatur at Decatur High School and continued in that position until 2010, when he was rehired at Georgia State in the position of Lecturer in Classics. He remained at Georgia State until spring of 2015 when the program in Latin and Classics was terminated by the Dean’s Office. He now teaches Latin part-time at Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School in Sandy Springs, Georgia, as well as at Spelman. He has also taught Ancient Greek and Latin classes as an adjunct at Emory and Oglethorpe Universities in Atlanta and has taught for five years in Morehouse College’s federal Trio Upward Bound program.
