About Me

Teaching Latin and Greek Mythology  is my idea of great fun! I teach students from age 5 - 16.  Minimus the Mouse (Cambridge) and Minimus Secundus  are my favorites with Cambridge I and II being next.  I've used Memoria Press texts Latina Christian I and II and am moving some student groups into First Form Latin and Second From Latin.  I also run a chapter of the MJCL (St. Paul's Academy) out of my home.  Our monthly meetings have been a blast.  Since I sometimes run low on ideas, I'm often  looking for ideas forf fun activies to do with students.  Of course, I'm happy to share what has worked for me and my students as well!
