Biblical Hebrew Teacher

A Few Words About Me

One of Annie’s favorite quotes is: “It is a bit embarrassing to have been concerned with the human problem all one’s life and find at the end that one has no more to offer by way of advice than ‘try to be a little kinder'” by Aldous Huxley. Since working for the Israel Institute of Biblical Studies, Annie has taught Biblical Hebrew courses in private and group lessons. She also helps train newly hired English and Hebrew teachers.

Education

Annie received a B.A. in both Anthropology (with a focus on archaeology) and Religious Studies (with a focus on Judaic Studies) from the University of Oregon. She then received an M.A. while studying Near Eastern Archaeology of the Iron Age at the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago, where she continued studying Biblical Hebrew, in addition to Aramaic and Babylonian and Neo-Assyrian Cuneiform. She is currently pursuing a PhD at the University of Oregon, where her focus is on Decolonizing Archaeological Practice.

Professional Experience

In addition to her academic training, Annie has extensive experience in heritage management. She has practiced archaeology in Micronesia, multiple sites in the Middle East and the Caribbean, and has worked professionally in the museum sector. She began studying Biblical Hebrew in 2000, started working for the Israel Institute of Biblical Studies in 2009, and currently teaches archaeology and Hebrew courses at the University of Oregon.
