Filed under: Uncategorized — Ann E. M. Ostrom @ 5:39 pm

Greetings to all LCA members and local Classics teachers,

The annual fall meeting of the Louisiana Classical Association will be held on Saturday, September 14, at Tulane University in New Orleans, LA.

We have a very special guest from the National Latin Exam Writing Committee to present on upcoming changes to the national assessment and also to provide audience members with NLE ancillary materials. This is not to be missed!

Other sessions will feature local teachers at both the secondary and collegiate levels from throughout the state. Additionally, we will discuss “the State of the Classics in Louisiana” plus officially establish a teacher travel scholarship.

We really hope to see as many people as possible for this exciting half-day of scholarship and fellowship. Please read the details below and let us know if you have questions. We can’t wait to see everyone and welcome new colleagues! Bring a friend!
