I continue to evolve my practice in Latin from a grammar-based approach to natural method to now, comprehensible input. It is based on an initial dissatisfaction with not being able to read and think in the target language, despite all of my training. I have been working on instilling CI into my program and have been looking for more training – so I am excited to be able to attend, thanks to the support of my administration back at Pine Crest.
Read more about what I hope to accomplish here on Romae.org. I will miss time with my family, but it will give me incredible momentum moving forward in helping me perfect my practice and really develop our Latin program into one of the most innovative in the country!
This is becoming a true tradition! With more students than ever before in the program (56 students which is up from previous years) we have a big troop headed to New York in March.
The idea behind the trip is to give our students the opportunity to walk through museums having learned about these amazing works of art throughout the year. They will have a deep and enriching experience as they get to see these works in person while being immersed in the excitement of New York City.
We have been doing this trip for years and I am proud to have been able to successfully keep it going. This will be our second year in a row (we had an off year in 2016) and we are adding the Whitney to our tour of the Met, MoMA, Guggenheim, and Frick museums. It’s going to be a lot of fun for the kids and I always look forward to their expressions when they first see an image that they had been looking at on a screen or textbook all year!
