Ciao! I am Dr. Lillyrose Veneziano Broccia. This is my first year at the University of Delaware – my second semester as a continuing-track Assistant Professor of Italian. Here at UD I have been teaching Beginning Italian I.
I was born and raised in a Sicilian-speaking home in Philadelphia. After attending Community College of Philadelphia, I graduated with my BA in Italian and French from Temple University. Then, at Middlebury College - in Vermont and Florence, Italy - I completed my MA in Italian. After teaching part-time in Philadelphia, I moved to New York City – where I earned my PhD in Italian at Columbia University.
My work and research focus on Second Language Development and Language and Culture Pedagogy. I am committed to fostering collaborative and inclusive learning communities, inside and outside the classroom, in a way that empowers and uplifts learners. I have been teaching online since 2013 and have been happy to share my experience in virtual environments during this unpredictable and difficult time – encouraging comfortable remote classes that truly welcome meaningful engagement.
My love for Italian and pedagogy feel very much at home here at UD, where my role focuses on teaching. Even though our time together so far has only been virtual, it has been a joy getting to know students and colleagues – near and far.
I was supposed to attend UD out of high school, but my path took me in different directions for a while. Now, I am finally here – enjoying my first year as a Blue Hen!
