Salvete, omnes! My name is Susan Drummond, and I teach Latin. My courses webpages can be found on Google Classroom. I earned a B.A. in Classics with a focus in Latin from the University of Mary Washington, and my M.A. in Classics from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. I taught courses such as Latin, Mythology, and Western Civilization at the University of Wisconsin at Madison for over five years. My focus areas are Archaic Greek poetry, Plato's philosophy, Hellenistic philosophy, Roman agronomy, and Augustan poetry. Sounds eclectic, right? What I love about Classics as a discipline is that it has something for everyone. Some students come to Latin to learn a new language. Others love mythology and want to read more of it. Some are in it for the history. Others still want to experience some of the most influential literary works in the Western world. In my classes, students get to investigate all of these topics. In the process, they will improve their English grammar through the study of Latin, expand their English vocabularies by learning Latin root words, strengthen their knowledge of history, learn to think critically about literature, and develop the ability to make just about anything sound fancier by saying it in Latin.
