Salvete, omnes! I teach Latin at Page High School. This is my second year here. I am located in room 203.
I love languages and cultures. The first language I studied (after English) was German, which I started learning during the summer after 7th grade. My experience with Latin began during 8th grade and has continued off and on for many years. I have also studied some French, Classical Greek, Gelic, and Japanese.
I graduated from Duke University, Trinity College of Arts and Sciences, with a BA in Medieval and Renaissance Studies. In 2001 I earned an MA in history at UNCG, followed by an M. Ed. in teaching high school social studies in 2008. While working on the M. Ed., I took classes in Latin and Classical civilization in order to add certification in Latin to my teaching license. I added that certification in 2009.
A couple of fun facts about me:
1) I have 4 cats.
2) I enjoy manga and anime.
3) I went to Japan in July 2018 (fantastic despite the heat wave!).
