While new to Linganore, Christa Angelone is no stranger to teaching or to Latin. Having spent 34 years teaching at Middletown High and two years at Walkersville High, Mrs. Angelone knows a thing or two about the language of the Romans.

Angelone has enjoyed the first two weeks of school.  They have gone, “pretty good.”

Originally from Germany, Angelone picked up an interest for Latin in high school. Despite not taking classes for it in college, she always had an interest. After scoring high on the Praxis test, the American teacher certification exam, she discovered she was eligible to teach Latin and decided to teach the language.

The language of Latin goes back thousands of years. From it, several more languages have grown and developed, which are known as the Romance languages. Spanish, Romanian, Italian, French, and Portuguese are the most commonly spoken Romance languages. English is considered a Germanic language despite most English words deriving from Latin.

Students taking Latin this year will be learning both the language and the history of the Romans. Latin itself, while being a mostly unspoken language, is widely used in many aspects of life today. From jobs in medical positions to simply learning more about where a lot of English words come from, Latin has plentiful day-to-day applications for interested students.
