I am new member here and I thought I'd say hello. I am a stay at home dad with a degree in Literature iand Theology. My wife is in the insurance business, so I get to hang out with my 17 month old daughter everyday.
I took 2 years of Latin in High School (Straight As), but I am a little rusty as it has been years since I declined a 4th declension noun. I am also learning Greek. My goals are twofold: one, reading ability in both languages so I can read Catullus and Homer in the original. Second, I want to be able to show my daughter as she grows up my appreciation for Literature, and I feel learning Greek and Latin will make me a better teacher to my little girl.
Another area where I feel a calling toward is the death of classical education in current schools in the USA. It saddens me when pupils think Homer is a cartoon character! Sad, I do think. I want to find ways to get Latin and Greek back in the schools!
Other than languages, I love soccer. I also like music, too. I write poetry and sometimes lecture on the subject (I was in an MA in Creative Writing program until life happened). I am working on a collection of verse, too. So I am a busy guy and I think this will be a great place for me to visit and connect.
