Rose Moore. IMSA’s first Latin teacher. Yes, IMSA students learned Latin for the first 13 years from 1986 to 1999. Thank you Doc Nok for helping me with this information.

I thought I would share some lessons in Latin about how to succeed at IMSA with our newest class of students, our sophomores. Of course, these lessons apply also to our juniors and seniors. Well, technically, I am not going to share the lessons in Latin. I’m just going to use some Latin words and phrases to make my points.Are you ready for your first lesson?

Are you ready?

But, first, good morning everyone! And welcome to the new Academic Year 2019-2020 and our Convocation ceremony!
