Toni Callahan

Adjunct Professor

UNH Manchester


I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri.  My paternal grandmother had been raised speaking French and German as well as English. When my grandfather died, she remarried a Russian emigrant, a mechanical engineer who spoke seven languages.  We lived close to these two, and they encouraged all their grandchildren to learn as many languages as possible. I have always remembered this.


  • Italian 401
  • Italian 402


I spent my junior year of college enrolled at the University of Tubingen, and my husband and I spent a sabbatical year with our two children in Avignon, France.  I began studying Italian during college, in Germany, and have spent time in Italy every year or two. 

Other interests: reading, vegetable gardening, exercise, owning a Newfoundland dog, running a visitation program for people experiencing life transitions through my UCC church,  learning about the social history of African Americans, environmental issues, immigration and refugee issues.
