About My Library
I own many, but not all of the books listed. I tend not to get very far into books I don't like, so that may help explain why so many are rated highly. (If it's a 5, I loved it--I might add a "favorite" tag to specify further). I like to read books with a good plot that make me think; I don't read books just because they are supposed to be "good literature." I'm abnormally picky (wish I weren't quite so). Of course, I have a decent nonfiction section containing various Latin and history books.
About Me
I am a Latin teacher at Cherry Creek High School in Greenwood Village, CO (as you can tell by the high number of Classics-related books in my library). I love sports and the outdoors. I am a huge Braves fan, and I like to play tennis and soccer,go hiking and play disc golf, and travel (there is so much I want to see). I graduated from The College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA, and I have a Master's Degree in Latin from the University of Georgia in Athens, GA.
