Mrs. Sara Peters - Latin
I absolutely LOVE Latin. I got to start studying it when I was in 9th grade and am SO happy to help students start learning about the Romans and the language starting in 5th grade. If it weren't for learning Latin, I would not have gotten to travel to Greece, Turkey, and Italy nor would I be able to read signs in Italian each time I visit my favorite cities. Latin helps me think about things from a different perspective and I always find myself wondering, 'what would the Romans think about this?' I hope that my students wonder things like this, too.
Every Sunday I Skype with my Latin-speaking friend from Mexico, Eduardo, where we read books in Latin and discuss their connections to today's world. I also play the trombone in the famous Chatham Town Band at the concerts on Fridays during the summer. I bought a house in Dennis Port in 2017 and am now enjoying the wonderful world of home ownership.
