"Latin should be begun as early as possible-at a time when inflected speech seems no more astonishing than any other phenomenon in an astonishing world; and when the chanting of amo, amas, amat is as ritually agreeable to the feelings as the chanting of eeny, meeny, miney, moe."

-Dorothy Sayers

The Lost Tools of Learning

Salvete parents and discipuli!

This is my 3rd year teaching Latin at Seven Hills, and second year serving as a teacher representative on the school board. I must say, I am amazed at the progress all of our students have made since they began Latin, and can’t wait to see what we will accomplish this year.

 I earned my Bachelor’s from Loyola Marymount University in 2006 with a degree in Classical Civilizations, and in 2011 completed my Masters in Childhood Education at the State University of New York at Cortland . Although I’m done with school, I still love to learn, and currently play viola in a quartet at MacPhail, in addition to attending trainings on teaching languages.

 I live in Minneapolis with my pug Cosette during the school year, but spend my summers on the east coast teaching Etymologies for Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth, as well as visiting my friends and family. 

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to email  or call me.




K-2 Latin Song Lyrics

We are currently studying unit 2 songs in grades K-2. If you would like to print a copy of those songs, please look under classroom files.

3rd Grade

3rd grade just finished up chapter unum, and is now studying chapter duo! This chapter includes new vocabulary to be mastered, as well as the present tense verb endings. Help your student review these endings by asking them what new song they learned in Latin class is. And if they don't remember...

The present tense endings of the verbs in Latin are easy,

O, S, T, Mus, Tis, Nt - Easy as can be!

I, you, he/she/it, we you, they- Are the endings of the verbs that we say, hey!

The present tense endings of the verbs in Latin are easy,

O, S, T, Mus, Tis, Nt - Easy as can be!

(Sung to the tune of Mickey Mouse Club)
