Magistra Adrienne Nims
Salvete omnes! I am so excited to start teaching Latin I and Latin II at Trailside Middle School. I previously taught Latin in Williamsburg, VA and am now starting my first year in Loudoun County. In addition to teaching at Trailside, I will also be teaching Latin III and Latin IV at Rock Ridge High School. I grew up in Fairfax County, so I am very happy to be back in the area that I call home.
What I am most looking forward to about teaching here is being able to welcome students and parents into the stellar community that is Trailside MS. I am also very excited to have the opportunity to share my passion for Latin with my students, showing them how to not only understand Latin but also learn to think about language more deeply and complexly.
My own Latin journey began back in middle school, leading me to take Latin all through high school, pursue my degree in Latin in college, and finally become a Latin teacher. My love for the language was truly cemented when I attended Governor's Latin Academy the summer after my sophomore year of high school, but it all started with a great Latin teacher in eighth grade.
Outside of teaching, I enjoy spending time with family, settling in with a cup of coffee and a good book, running, and crafting.
Here's to an exciting year of learning more about language, ourselves, and one another. Valete!
