I’ve been teaching myself Latin since 7th grade when my father handed me his old Latin textbook. I became fascinated by its formulaic and logical structure. Entering high school I had mastered the first dozen chapters of Wheelock's Latin textbook and I decided to teach it as an elective class to middle school students. 


Although this section of my blog doesn’t necessarily align with the core concepts of math and science, I find that the study of languages such as Latin and Greek intertwines a great deal with the study of STEM. It’s a very technical language that requires discipline to learn. I find that the best way to learn (and teach it) is to make use of other languages you know as Latin sets the foundation and framework for many European languages spoken today. In the same sense, I sometimes find that physics topics click best when explained with math and proofs. Interdisciplinary study is a common thread through almost all subjects and is an idea I’d like to stress throughout this section. If you scroll some more, you’ll be able to access both my lesson plans that I made to organize my self-study, as well as different assessments I’ve made and fun projects like mad-libs and stories for my class to translate.
