Name: Diana M. Cataldi
Department: Core Curriculum & Music

What courses do you teach?

Global Music in a Diverse World & Music Appreciation (online)

How long have you been teaching at Viterbo University?

Four years

What is something you do in the classroom that has proven effective?

I like to give oral exams for a final.  This gives students a chance to verbally hash through subjects with me face to face without fear of speaking in front of their peers.

What is something you do outside of the classroom (e.g. scholarly work, research, publication)?

I am going back to school to enter a different field using my music and voice knowledge to become a speech and language pathologist.

What is something you do for fun (e.g. hobbies, interests beyond teaching)?

I love movies, board games, and fishing/boating!  Spending time with my kids is a favorite as well.
