  1. James and his work are a big part of why I felt inspired to take the plunge into teaching Latin with CI. This is a very well deserved accolade for an exceptional teacher and human being. You the man, James!

    1. Ha, I just saw that John also said “you the man” (albeit in correct spelling), which must mean that you truly are the man. You Latin Kings are serious pioneers!

  2. Hosler did this story at iflt: puer et puela sunt. puer puelam amat. Puela ad Sharkago it. Puer at Sharkago it. Puela pueram non amat. Puela pueram pulsat. Puer non felix est.

    This guy is so slow that the words just glue themselves into your head.

  3. Well done James! It was a pleasure meeting you in Denver this past summer. And with all your participation and contributions, I can definitely see why you were chosen as Teacher of the Month!

  4. And James’ fine sense of humor.

    Always clever, sincere, to the point and so very kind.
    With James it’s all – finesse-.

    I like how Michele Whaley expressed “walking amongst the giants”.
    That is how I feel about James. A TPRS giant. A true master.

  5. I echo all of the thoughts above. From the very first time you wrote on this blog, I knew you were special. You have a way of seeing things that cuts through the “you know what.” The fact that you are a kind human being, too, is what draws us all to you. Thanks for being here. I always look forward to your frank observations.

  6. Your kindness radiates as does your intense passion for Latin and for your students! Congratulations!!! You may not feel like it at the end of the day (or maybe you do!!) but you are indeed a trailblazer.

    with love,

  7. It’s amazing the thoughtfulness you put into your craft, James, while running an entire Latin program AND being a father. You definitely set the bar high… which involves how much you give and share to us, your colleagues.

    I’m grateful to pause and celebrate you!

  8. James, am I glad I’m perusing the blog tonight and found this post!!
    I’d want to be a parrot and repeat what everyone has said here but I won’t.
    So I’ll just congratulate you on this well deserved honor.

    You and all the Latinists doing this work are just simply amazing!

    Enjoy and cheers!

  9. Congrats, James!

    I needed some inspiration one day last week during a planning period so I re-watched one of your videos. My favorite part was when (in Latin!) you redirected your students to look at the teacher. You redirected attention in Latin! Also, you went over your ordre du jour before beginning class, which inspired me to be a tad more organized.

    I’d like to echo what Robert said – I hope to learn Latin one day, but I would particularly love to do it with you teaching a fluency fast class!
