Congratulations to middle school Latin teacher, Abbi Holt, for being awarded the Arlington Education Foundation's Continuing Scholars Grant!
Abbi was awarded $1,870 to pay for tuition to UMASS Dartmouth's summer program on using spoken Latin in the classroom. The program works like a typical language immersion program and includes daily workshops on how to use spoken Latin with students. In the fall, Abbi plans to share what she learns with other teachers through an after-school workshop.
