My Students

I teach Latin I and Latin II to students in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades at Francis C. Hammond Middle School in Alexandria, VA. My students are highly motivated to learn the Latin language, a challenging subject! Besides learning the basics of Latin grammar (do you remember amo, amas, amat?) I teach my students all aspects of Roman daily life. The students study the Latin language and Roman culture and understand that the Greco-Roman World has profoundly influenced Western Civilization. Latin is a subject worth their time and effort.

My school has a very diverse study body.

Students at Hammond are proud of the countries they represent and are also extremely interested in learning about other cultures. Hammond is a Title I school that has a free/reduced lunch rate for over three quarters of its students. I provide many of my students’ basic supplies such as binders, paper, supply cases, and pens for use in the classroom. The students complete amazing projects in class that relate to the stories we translate. They have made cartoons, beautiful maps, and created family trees of the Olympian gods.

My Project

The resources will go toward the students creating a 2-D and 3-D ancient Rome home. The poster board will serve as the foundation for the house and infrastructure, such as roads and sidewalks. The walls, roof, and columns of the house will be made out of sturdy construction paper glued together. Students will label the rooms with markers.

My project will relate to the Latin stories the class is reading in which Roman houses are described.

Several of the chapters in the textbook we use have stories in which the characters are located in specific rooms; for example the tablinum (study) or the garden (hortus). The project will serve to help students understand the basic layout of a Roman house and how people functioned in the rooms.
