    Katie Petrole is the Steinmetz Family Foundation Museum Fellow, aka Corinth Excavations Educator.

    As part of an innovative grant-funded project, she is responsible for all educational activities at Corinth Excavations in Ancient Corinth, Greece. She also manages the archaeological collection and finds stories behind the objects to turn into lesson plans freely available online. Please review the list of lesson plans on our Virtual Field Trip page or on the Corinth Excavations website. When you request 'A virtual field trip to Ancient Greece and Corinth' session, you will need to share which lesson plan you prefer, the grade level of your students, and how many students will partcipate in the Skype session.

    Check out a program Corinth Excavations has hosted on-site with many great local and Athenian partners, and see our website for more videos and images of Corinth Excavation outreach:

    Katie has previously worked at the world's largest children's museum, The Children's Museum of Indianapolis, for five years and has spent summers completing collections management projects at the Athenian Agora Excavations. She has a MA in Museum Studies from Indiana University (IUPUI) and a BA in Classical Humanities from Miami University (Ohio).
