Testimonials from Students & Parents 

"You have given me such a great love of Latin"

Student: “As my school year ends, I just want to tell you that I love your courses so much. You have given me such a great love of Latin, even through the recording, that I can’t wait to continue taking Latin in college next year. Learning Latin grammar has also helped me better understand English grammar. I will miss you in the fall!”

"You inspired me to continue on my Latin journey"

Student: “Thank you for teaching me the intriguing/super awesome/super hard subject of Latin! Your knowledge of the subject and the ability to teach the subject has brought me to love and desire the learning of the language. The first year of Latin I took with you I said to myself “I’ll only take one year of Latin” but at the end of the year, you inspired me to continue on my Latin journey. And the next year I said the same, “I’ll only take two years of Latin”. But the next year I was drawn back to my Latin journey:) Thank you so much for teaching me! I have truly learned so much, (and a lot of the English language too). I don’t think I could have done it without your help. But alas, “All good things must come to an end, but the next experience awaits” – Unknown. If I come across anyone who wants to learn the Latin language, I will certainly direct them to you. I haven’t had too many teachers but you are certainly one of the best, (not including my mother). Teachers like you are hard to come by. “

"We look forward to boot camp"

Parent: “Thank you so much for all you do. Your efforts and expertise are highly appreciated.  We look forward to boot camp and intermediate Latin.”

" I love your weekly parent updates"

Parent: “Wow, I love your weekly parent updates. And thank YOU for making this year so do-able for my boys. They have learned a lot and I believe they are looking forward to more. I am grateful for the Latin they are learning. It will, of course, making learning any other Romance language substantially easier. And my science (and art) guy, appreciates the word roots he’s been able to decipher. Thank you again, for the warm notes and hard work you have given to this class”

"Thank you for your time, patience, and zeal!"

Parent: “I first want to thank you for all your hard work and effort you put into teaching Latin! [My daughter] plans to continue your Latin classes all the way through Advanced Latin! She has a strong desire for a religious vocation. So, knowing Latin is a priority! She really enjoys you as a teacher! So, Thank you! Thank you for your time, patience, and Zeal!”

"My and my brother's favorite class"

Student: “This is by far my and my brother’s favorite class. Keep up the good work!”

"I learned a LOT in this semester!"

Student: “I learned a LOT in this semester!”

"My favorite teacher for my high school years."

Student: “Mrs. Henry, I would like to thank for all you have done these past three years. You have helped me grow in so many ways intellectually, personally, and ethically. I wish you all the best with your future Latin classes, and that your students may enjoy them as much as I did. You are and have remained my favorite teacher for my high school years. Optimam fortunam tibi volo, et gratias tibi ago pro omnem!”

"Both of my kids truly enjoy your classes"

Parent: “… both of my kids truly enjoy your classes. It has been a joy watching them converse, or try to. The online class has been extremely good for [my daughter], she is very shy so it has definitely taken her out of her comfort zone.  As you can tell from the cooking video 😉 Have a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!  We’ll see you in a few weeks.”

"If I had more children they would be in your class"

Parent: “Thank you Mrs. Henry for a great year! [My son] did such a good job this year, thanks to you! … Our family has learned so much with you the past few years with Homeschool Connections. We are so blessed that you have been there for us. If I had more children they would be in your class but I do tell all that I know about your very good Latin class! Thank you!”

"I know a lot more Latin than I thought I would"

Student: “I think Mrs. Henry is a good Magistra. I know a lot more Latin than I thought I would.”

"I am so grateful to be a part of her class!"

Student: “Mrs. Henry is a fantastic teacher and I am so grateful to be a part of her class! Being on Homeschool Connections is such an amazing experience! Thank you again! God Bless! “

"I'm starting to understand Latin now, and I love it!"

Student: “One of the awesome things I learned in Latin with Mrs. Henry this year is that Latin really is used all over the world, people even use Latin words not knowing it’s Latin because they heard it in a song or saw it in a book, or something of the sort. For an example, I was playing online Pictionary and one of the players had their name on there and after their name, there were the words ” paternoster,” exactly like that. I asked her if she knew what it meant and she didn’t so I told her, and now she knows that the Pater Noster is the Our Father prayer in Latin! Also, just recently, there was a recipe that had a few Latin words sprinkled in it. I’m starting to understand Latin now, and I love it! Thanks Mrs. Henry for Latin this year with you, it was great!”

"Mrs. Henry's love of Latin lit a fire in him"

Parent: “My son was doing D work in our local Latin co-op so I signed up for Mrs. Henry’s Latin hoping to at least get him up to C work. Mrs. Henry’s love of Latin lit a fire in him and within just a few months, he was doing A-level work. On top of that, he won an award with the National Latin Exam. I’m happy beyond words. Thank you.”
