Lesson Details

Latin

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I have taught Latin for 13 years in various environments. I have taught high school Latin I, II, III, IV and AP. However, I also taught my son, starting at 4 year old. I prefer the Cambridge Latin Course, and a reading approach to Latin, though I am familiar with other texts as well. I am a very visual teacher and incorporate history and culture into all that I am teacher. (I also have a Master's in Social Studies .) I have sponsored Junior Classical League for 14 years.

I agree with the your philosophy that “All children can learn when taught correctly, regardless of past history.” I feel connecting to the students as individuals and on a personal level is what engages them and bring them to level of wanting to learn. I believe in “teaching across the curriculum,” as no subject is isolated from any other. Teaching Latin has enabled me to teach ancient history, literature, poetry, English grammar as well as the language. I have also taught humanities and mythology, which helps with the whole global perspective of history. My lesson plans are developed using constructivist techniques and are authentic with the intention of helping students become life-long learners.

Laura Eckard is a very charismatic and responsive teacher. She works well with her students and she assures that they have all opportunities to succeed. She is very good at explaining and making sure her students understand. I was very impressed with her as a teacher and how well her and her students interacted. For me personally, she helped me to better understand the subject as a whole, and to fully grasp all concepts. She works well with her students and in return, they gain the knowledge she gives them.
