Chair, Foreign Language Department, Latin Teacher, Parkview High School
For more than half of my 27 years as a Latin teacher, I have devoted myself to creating classrooms where all kinds of learners are welcome and where all students can be successful. My work has come to focus on Comprehensible Input as the key piece to this work: delivering understandable messages in Latin in a variety of ways.
