Girl Develop It LA - Teaching Assistant
Episcopal School of Jacksonville - Latin Teacher
In 2014-2016, I taught Latin I, IB, II, III, and IV to 8th-12th grade students. Each class had 10-15 students. I used games and activities to reinforce learning Latin grammar and vocabulary and collaborated with the other Latin teacher to develop a Roman culture curriculum. I ensured student success on assessments with "practice tests" and did projects on Greek mythology and Roman history, as well as a unit on the film Gladiator. As the JCL (Latin Club) advisor, I provided activities for meetings while encouraging students to take on club responsibilities. In summer 2016, I created academic materials for the school Ancient Italy trip and served as a chaperone.
Chandler Preparatory Academy - Latin Teacher
In 2013-2014, I taught three sections of 6th grade Latin and one section of 9th grade Latin III Honors at one of the Great Hearts charter schools. Each class had 20-24 students. Through mentorship, I developed classroom management skills and Latin-based games to engage middle school students. I also developed a literature-based curriculum for the second semester of Latin III, selecting Horace and Catullus poems to read by theme. I used group work to maximize student participation and made activities such as "Grammar Treasure Hunts" to reinforce the material.
The Paideia Institute - Assistant Teacher
In summer 2013, I was an assistant teacher for Living Latin in Rome High School. In addition to chaperoning the students in the dorm and around the city, I led small groups in spoken Latin and translation activities around Rome.
