Magistra Madden is perhaps one of the most skilled teachers I have ever had posted by Caris Gross on July 04 2019 at 20:41:48
Magistra Madden is perhaps one of the most skilled teachers I have ever had. She manages to make even seemingly dull grammar topics or passages of literature thrilling and full of possibility. After studying Latin with her for seven years, I recently completed AP Latin with her this year. We spent the year translating the required literary selections as a group and on our own while simultaneously preparing for the exam by consistently reviewing vocabulary, English translations, and grammar. She set clear expectations for our work ethic and trusted us to follow her instruction. With her encouraging attitude, thorough knowledge of the material, and clear communication, AP Latin was one of my favorite classes this year, leading me to feel confident about my preparation for the exam.
Thanks to Magistra Madden, Latin has become my passion posted by Aislinn Niimi on July 04 2019 at 20:39:52
I have been taking Latin classes with Magistra Madden since elementary school, and it is thanks to her that it has become my passion. Taking AP Latin with her was a fun and challenging experience. The translation work may seem daunting, but soon you become accustomed to the pace and it becomes an exciting experience. It is extremely rewarding to look back at the hundreds of lines of Latin we have translated in this class. You will have fun as you embark on 90 mile per day marches with Caesar and a journey to the Underworld with Aeneas. Magistra Madden is a very devoted teacher who truly treasures the experience that AP Latin provides to her students. She pushes her students toward excellence and equips them with the tools they need to succeed on the exam. I will be taking the exam next week, and I feel that this class has prepared me well.
