Magistra JRo vobis salutationes dicit!
I decided to take Latin when I was in high school because I thought for sure I was going to be a doctor. But by the middle of my sophomore year that all changed - I knew I was going to be a Latin teacher. :-) The rest is history! After doing my student teaching right here at HHS, I went on to begin my career teaching Latin and World History at Ravenna HS. I returned to HHS in 1998 and have been here ever since.
Beginning with the 2017-18 school year, Latin is being offered at the Middle School! I am very excited to be teaching Latin to 8th graders in addition to my HS classes. It is the start of a brand new adventure.
I have a real passion for Latin and all things classical. Latina est immortalis! The influences of Latin, Greek and Roman history, and classical mythology are woven through the fabric of our lives today. My students learn to fully appreciate those influences.
