Class experience

I fell in love with classics as an undergraduate. During high school, I had taken a few Latin courses, and I had a genuine interest in the language (as a child, I had even attempted to teach myself Latin from a book, which didn't go so well, but clearly I had an attraction to Latin from an early age!), but it wasn't something I imagined myself pursuing in any serious way in higher education. In the first semester of my freshman year at college, however, due to a mix up with my schedule, I ended up in a Roman history course, and it transformed my world. I was entranced by both the subject matter and the teacher, and when the second semester came around, I made sure to sign up for as many classics courses as I could take. By sophomore year, I was learning ancient Greek and declaring my major in classics. I received my BA in Latin Language and Literature (with an undeclared minor in ancient Greek) from Oberlin College. 

During my senior year of college, I made the decision to apply to graduate school. By that time, I had decided that I wanted to share my excitement for the classical world by becoming a teacher, and given my passion for classics, I preferred to deepen my knowledge of the subject rather than to attend a master's of education program. I received a merit-based classics fellowship from the University of Virginia, from which I received my MA in Classics. 

I began my Latin teaching career as an undergraduate, when I was selected by Oberlin College's Department of Classics to teach a month-long, intensive Latin language course (six hours a day) for fellow undergraduates. This intensive course was intended to replace Latin 101 for students who could not fit the traditional, semester-long course in their schedule; those students who completed it were then eligible for the Latin 102 course. I also began my work as a Latin tutor during my time as an undergraduate. I have been a Latin language tutor for my entire adult life, and I have taught Latin language and literature courses on the college level at both Oberlin College and the University of Virginia. I also worked as a Latin teacher at a private school in Virginia for many years, and as such, I taught Latin language and literature courses (intro Latin all the way through AP Latin) for middle schoolers and upper schoolers; because the school gave teachers control over course curriculum, I structured my classes so that mythology, Roman history, and classical civilization played an integral role.
Students will need to bring to each class a notebook or looseleaf paper, pencils/pens, and a willingness to learn! Students will also need a copy of Wheelock's Latin textbook (7th edition). Students can purchase the electronic/Kindle edition for $10.99 on Amazon, or a paperback copy (a new copy is $16.49 at Amazon; used copies begin at $8.61 at Amazon): https://www.amazon.com/Wheelocks-Latin-7th-ebook/dp/B004OVEZ84/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8

Hardback copies are also available. Students are welcome to purchase any form of the textbook (electronic, paperback, hardback) according to their preferences, but please be aware that the graphics in the electronic version are not as clear as one might like, and I would strongly recommend looking closely at the Amazon preview before purchasing. For students who intend to continue their course of Latin study and enroll in the next course in this series, please note that you will continue to use this textbook.
