Interviewed former Latin teacher about how she and her students creatively utilized the classroom to celebrate Latin and ancient history. For personal inspiration blog, The Artist Statement.
'What good fortune for me to have found a teaching position that allowed me to try to excite younger students (first middle school and then high school) with the wonder of learning a new language and through it, an appreciation for the ancient Greco-Roman civilization.
I found that teaching is a two-way street: I was ever delighted by and grateful for the enthusiasm and “Eureka moments” of my students. In turn, I learned so much from many of them.'
