Mrs. Williams was my middle school Latin teacher. Now, you would think that Latin was a hard and boring subject but in her capable hands it was not only learnable, but fun.
When eight of us wanted to continue Latin after our 8th grade year, we were told it wasn’t being offered and that we would have to take Spanish or French. Well, Mrs. Williams heard that we wanted to take her class and gave up one of her planning periods to keep teaching us. We, in turn, doubled up on language classes and took Latin in addition to Spanish.
