AB in Latin and Ancient Greek, University of Pennsylvania

Francis Gavin

This is my third year as a Latin teacher in the Wall School District.  I teach at the Wall Intermediate School in the mornings and at Wall High School in the afternoon sessions.  I earned an AB in Latin and Ancient Greek from the University of Pennsylvania.  I previously taught Latin in the West Morris Regional High School District.  I am also trained and experienced in the International Baccalaureate classes entitled SL Latin, HL Latin, Theory of Knowledge and Personal and Professional Skills.


I will be using Google Classroom as the primary platform for assignments and materials.  Check the class pages listed on the side for the Google Class codes, a link to curriculum and needed supplies.  The primary platform for grades will continue to be Genesis.


Students must come to class prepared in every aspect to learn Latin and about the Roman world.  That requires an operational Chromebook that has been properly charged.  In addition students should always have a proper writing implement and bring with them any materials previously disributed in class.


I finish the day at the High School.  If a student desires extra help, I will schedule an appointment either for a virtual meeting or in person before school.
