 I am a dedicated and creative literacy specialist with 20+ years experience working with students of all ages. In addition to teaching a nine-level Introduction to Latin course series on Outschool, I also teach another popular series of courses on Outschool called Vocabulary Building with Roots and Affixes, which extends through six levels so far. As a language buff, I’ve studied Italian, Latin, German, and (to a lesser extent) French and Spanish. 

I hold permanent certification from New York State in Reading (grades K-12). I am also a certified Wilson Reading System dyslexia practitioner. I have extensive experience with Orton-Gow methods for literacy re/mediation; the foundation for that work was the introductory training I received through the Gow Teacher Training Institute. I taught Orton-Gow (Reconstructive Language) at the Gow School and the Gow School Summer Program for several years. Across more than a decade as a teacher educator and university reading center director, I helped to prepare several hundred reading teachers and literacy specialists in NY and PA. 

I completed my undergraduate degree at The Catholic University of America School of Music. My doctoral and master’s degrees were earned at the University at Buffalo School of Education, under the advisement of Dr. Michael W. Kibby, a nationally known literacy diagnostician and scholar.  I have presented my research at several national and international conferences, including Literacy Research Association, International Reading Association, and International Dyslexia Association.
Homework Offered
Links to the various games and activities played each week will be posted on the classroom page, and students will be encouraged to engage in self-study for 1-2 hours each week.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
I engage in continuous informal assessment throughout the class, taking notes about what the learners already know and what mini-lessons need to be embedded into future sessions. The games and puzzles learners engage in during each session serve as informal assessment measures, as well.
Grades Offered
The dialogues and vocabulary used in this ongoing course will be pulled from this textbook. Learners are encouraged to obtain it directly from the publishers or from another book vendor.

Traupman, John C. (2007). Conversational Latin for Oral Proficiency, Fourth Edition: Phrase Book and Dictionary Classical and Neo-Latin. Mandelein, IL: Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers, Inc.

In addition, students are encouraged to have a notebook and several writing implements handy during class. 

Learning materials in the form of Google Docs files, Quizlet study games, and PDF files containing crossword puzzles, word searches, and bingo games etc. will be provided during class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Learners enrolling in this class should have achieved an early-intermediate level of Latin proficiency, equivalent to two full academic years of middle-school study or one full academic year of high-school study. The class might be suitable for learners outside of the stated age range. Please contact me to discuss this.

I share notes and exercises with students in Google Docs format, and I create Quizlet Live study games. The students do not need to be logged into the websites to access these materials and they can log into the files anonymously. The crossword puzzles, word searches, bingo games, and worksheets I create will be shared as PDF files.
