I’m an English teacher who learned Latin in his 30s to see if it could help with my teaching of English grammar. It has done that and so much more. I’ve sat both Latin and Classical Greek GCSEs in the last few years and my interest in Classics continues to grow. I’m very lucky that I have been able to introduce both Latin and Classical Greek lessons into my state school curriculum, which has pushed me to keep studying Classics. My English lessons are now peppered with Classical references and this has enriched my students’ experience of both English literature and language.
This year, I have been the fortunate recipient of both the SchoolTeacher Fellowship from the British School at Athens and an A. G. Leventis Foundation scholarship to study for an MA in Classical Studies with the Open University.
My website (now offline) was a collection of links that could be made between the arts and the Classical world. Classical Reception is something that greatly interests me and I hope that the entries continue to accumulate now that they will be hosted on the Classical Studies Support site.
