Jessamyn is pursuing a dual masters degree in Classics and in teaching world languages. She graduated from Mount Holyoke College with a B.A. in history and a minor in Spanish, earned a post baccalaureate certificate in Classics at the College of William and Mary, and taught Latin for three years prior to enrolling in the MCLLC program at UKY. She is a member of the Phi Beta Kappa honor society, the Eta Sigma Phi honor society in Classical studies, and the Alpha Delta Gamma honor society for the study of Medieval and Renaissance studies.  Jessamyn came to Kentucky to join a growing movement of language educators who promote active Latin use in the classroom, and believes in teaching ancient and modern languages as a means both of communication and of gaining perspective of the conditions facing people of other places and time periods, through which to better understand our own.
