Skye Shirley is an enthusiastic teacher who articulates well her knowledge and understanding not only of the Latin language but also of innovative teaching methods which she implements in her own classes with great energy.   It is obvious that she loves what she does and is eager for her students to share that same love of learning.  She is a refreshing and wonderful asset to the Latin community!  I heartily commend her for all of her hard work!
