About Amy Caldwell

I fell in love with history during a Western Civilization class, which is why this is one of my favorite courses to teach at MC. Later, I discovered Latin American history and, in particular, the history of Brazil. My enthusiasm for Brazil was so great that I moved there in 1992 and only returned in 2002. In addition to my love of history, I enjoy studying foreign languages and I absolutely adore soccer.
