Welcome!

Welcome to my RSU 14 homepage! Here I'll be posting weekly overviews of my lessons. Follow the links for the particulars. Google Classroom is the primary way I deliver content and communicate with students. Parents may request access to Google Classroom by emailing me directly.
 
A little about me. This is my second year at Windham, but I've been teaching for nearly a decade. I have a BA in history and an MA in classical languages (Greek and Latin). In brief, I think learning a language really matters. This has always been the case, but has become increasingly so with the advancement of technology, with globalization, and all the eliding and colliding of cultures and languages that these phenomena cause. There's never been a better time to slow down and think about the words we use and why we use them!
 
My wife and I live in Auburn with our dog Glen. I enjoy writing, photography, baking, travel, and rugby.
