National Latin Teacher Recruitment Week, March 7-11, 2011

The 9th Annual National Latin Teacher Recruitment Week is March 7-11, 2011.

This effort, a cooperative venture of the American Classical League, the American Philological Association, and various regional and state classical organizations, seeks to engage all Classicists at all levels of instruction in the business of insuring that our Latin, Greek, and Classics pre-college classrooms have the teachers they need.

Consider talking with your students about a career teaching at the pre-college level!

APA Teaching Awards for 2011

The APA Teaching Awards for 2010 have now been announced on the APA website and at the Plenary Session of the Annual Meeting in San Antonio. It is not too early to start thinking about college and pre-college level teachers you would like to nominate for the 2011 APA Teaching Awards.

Guidelines and deadlines from the 2010 competition are available on the APA website for your consultation. You can look for the 2011 materials to be posted later. Please read and share the information about these competitions with your college and secondary school colleagues.

I am delighted to add that the 2011 Awards will be funded at a higher level as a result of the APA's Capital Campaign!
