Profile Information

Hometown/Institution:
Pittsburgh/St. Louise de Marillac School
Role in the Classics Classroom (real or virtual):
teacher, Classics supporter
About Me:
I have served as Vice-Chair, Chair, and Immediate Past Chair of Excellence Through Classics Elementary/Middle Levels, a standing committee of the American Classical League for Introductory, Elementary, and Middle School Classics programs. I was recently appointed to the position as Classics Club Chair for ETC where I will be working to revive the Classics Club idea that started in the early years of ETC for students in grades k-8. I am also serving as the Chair of the Committee for Latin in Elementary Schools for the National Committee for Latin and Greek. This will be my first year on the committee and I look forward to working to promote Latin at the elementary level. I also serve as the Director of Community Outreach and Special Projects for Ancient Coins for Education, Inc. and on the Education Task Force for the Ancient Coin Collectors Guild. I am one of two teachers in the United States who serve as part of the Primary Latin Project for the UK. I love learning about new technology in the classroom and sharing what I have learned with others.
Favorite on-line spots for the Classics:

Best/worst computer-related classroom happening:
Using technology in the elementary classroom is the perfect "hook" to get students interested, engaged, and actively learning. I love pairing ancient studies with modern technology!
