My name is Adonia Chadwell and this year I am teaching Latin I, II and III. Although Latin is technically a "dead" language, it is still very much alive. Almost all aspects of our society today borrow from ancient Roman culture - government, architecture, laws and rights, but especially language. The vast majority of English words are derived from Latin; a knowledge of one helps the other.
Since Latin is no longer spoken, I will primarily teach students to read Latin. Our stories center around a Roman family living in Pompeii before the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. We will also study derivatives, learn to write Latin sentences and say basic Latin phrases.
In addition to learning the language, we will also study the culture of the ancient Romans. This will include mythology, history, architecture, family life, slavery, entertainment, and much, much more.
This site will provide a wealth of information. In addition to the syllabus and chapter lesson plans, handouts, power points, projects and other valuable resources can be found here.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have a question, comment or concern. I can be reached by phone through the main office, or by email. Email is the fastest way to communicate because I am able to check email throughout the day and from home. My email address is or click on my name below. I also use Remind and Portfoliyo to send out reminders, updates, etc. If you are interested in signing up for these alerts, please send me an email and I will send you the phone numbers and sign up codes. I look forward to working with you this year.
Please check back frequently for new information.
