I have 3 sons who are 28, 26, and 21 years old, and now I'm a grandma! My granddaughter just turned two in July. We have a dog named Regi, short for Regina, and a cat named Cloe, short for Cloelia.  

I spent much of my adulthood raising my family, and then I went back to college to become a Latin teacher. I taught Latin in New Jersey for ten years before resuming my education. In my spare time, when I am not speaking and reading Latin or sharing the ups and downs of life with my family, I play the flute and the piccolo.

I became a Latin teacher, but not because of some innate love of grammar. Twenty-five centuries of Latin speaking people got me hooked. The fact that people living from a very long time ago and on down through the centuries felt the same emotions and shared many of the same experiences that we face today - and spoke and wrote so vividly about them - made such a deep and lasting impression on my that I had to read more. And now I'm spending a significant part of my life sharing that with others. What a gift!
