The Latin appeal (it's addictive)

Hi everyone,

I am a Latin teacher who fell down a rabbit hole into the world of the Romans. I took Latin in junior high and Italian in college. When I became a teacher and my school needed a Magistra, I was called on to fill the position. (My administrator said, "Latin, Italian... they're basically the same thing. You'll be fine!") I have survived, but have always wanted more training. I was never able to ...
