INSTRUCTOR

Laura Manning

Laura is a Latin teacher with eighteen years of experience teaching in diverse environments and at different levels, from Introductory Latin through AP. Her teaching experience has included face-to-face courses that meet on various schedules, blended courses, and courses delivered entirely online. In 2013, she was honored to be named Teacher of the Year in Pequannock Township High School. She is currently certified to teach in these states: New Jersey, Virginia, Wisconsin, Texas, Georgia, Kentucky, Minnesota, Washington, and Alabama.

Early on in the course of her teaching career, Laura developed an interest in active Latin teaching methods. She has been facilitating the active use and acquisition of Latin in the Conventiculum Lexintoniense in Kentucky, and has been an avid participant since 2004. In 2014, she made the decision to go back to school, in order to increase her understanding of the Latin language and literature from all ages and how to teach it.

In August 2016 at the University of Kentucky, Laura earned her Master's Degree in Classics and the Graduate Certificate in Latin studies, which is a degree in spoken Latin. In August 2021 at the University of Kentucky, she received her PhD in Education Sciences with a focus on Latin active pedagogy, investigating teaching methods that have supported the teaching of Latin as a second language for millennia.
