Role in the Classics Classroom (real or virtual):
I have been a Latin teacher for the past 12 years. I started teaching middle school, but have been at the high school level for the past 10 years. I am the sole Latin teacher at my school and am looking to connect with other colleagues.
I graduated from the M.A.T. program at UMASS Amherst in '95.
I use Ecce Romani.
Favorite on-line spots for the Classics:
vroma: great for images
Best/worst computer-related classroom happening:
I spend a great deal of time creating power point presentsations on cultural topics that come up in Ecce. I find them useful for bringing the "Romans" into the clasasroom. I use an LCD projector to display my work.
