    Congratulations James !

    I am not a bit surprised to hear of your successes even if they mean a lot more work for you.
    It was great to meet you this summer at iFLT .
    I wish you much success this year and look forward to reading about your adventures.

    Latin is just exploding as a result of all of you wonderful CI Latin teachers, and it is just amazing, thank you!!!

  2. So many things I’d love to say…

    First…congratulations James! Your passion has created a whirlpool of energy and sucked students right in!

    Second…start right now encouraging students to become the kind of Latin teacher for future students that you are to them. You will NOT be able to teach 8 classes forever and you will need a comrade-in-arms!! Former students have become colleagues for many of us and the teaching profession needs amazing people.

    Third…please take care of yourself. Your energy level will face many, many challenges this year. It will affect your sleep, your immune system, your patience and much more. I am not sure how we can help you with this, but if we can, please let us know.

    with love,

  3. John you are going to be great at this. I just know that. You’ve got it all. Yes it will be new and a bit awkward at first, but you soaked it all up at iFLT and you also have about the strongest single language group of CI practitioners I know of for support – all those other Latin Kings.

  4. Thanks, Ben! Your kind words mean a lot to me. iFLT was definitely a game-changing event for me because of you and the Latin Kings. I’m going to ride that wave of positivity into the new year and relentlessly pester everyone for advice throughout 🙂

    1. Thanks for all the support y’all.

      Angie, I get 36 minutes each day to myself, along with a 22 minute lunch. The 36 minutes is homeroom time, which, thanks be to God, my principal took off my plate this year. Lunch is right after that 36 minutes, so I actually get a nice hour in the middle of the day with nobody in my room.

      1. Great job, James!
        How many minutes long is each class? I think it would be helpful to us all to see how you structure a typical week, if there is one 🙂


        1. Classes are 80 minutes each. 4 classes each day and they meet every other day. In a typical class I’ll do aural CI in the beginning and then read and then have them do something written down. Those 3 parts normally get us through.

  5. Hi 5 James,
    I would like to share your success with our new Latin/English teacher, if you do not mind. I already sent her a link of David Maust teaching and she commented, “I love this! He really goes slowly and mixes English with Latin in a way I could totally do! “
