Associations of teachers of Latin
The Classical Association of the Empire State (CAES)
CAES is a not-for-profit professional organization of teachers and professors of ancient Latin and Greek, which seeks to advance interest in, and the study of the classical languages and civilizations in the schools and colleges of New York State. CAES also strives to meet the professional needs of all teachers of the classical languages. One way of meeting these needs is through the annual CAES Institute, which meets every fall. Another goal of this website is to promote the study and teaching of Latin, and the classics in general. To that end we have setup a teacher placement service, allowing prospective teachers and employers to access the site and search for suitable jobs and applicants.
Preparation and Training for Teachers of Latin
The Classics Project of the Center for the Liberal Arts at the University of Virginia has been engaged since 1985 in determining the needs and desires of Latin teachers and of those who teach classical subjects in the secondary schools.
In proposing undergraduate major and professional development programs for Latin teachers, we make rather specific recommendations of authors and works to be read and topics to be studied.
A professional and confident knowledge of Latin is essential. We also recognize the ever-increasing importance to teachers, students, and the field at large of the many aspects of Roman history, daily life, art, and architecture, and we have incorporated these elements into our program.
The Classical Association of the Middle West and South
The Classical Association of the Middle West and South is an organization of university, college, secondary and elementary teachers of Latin, Greek and all other studies which focus on the world of classical antiquity.
CAMWS was founded at the University of Chicago in 1905 and incorporated in the State of Missouri on July 13, 1948. Its members (c. 1600) are primarily secondary-school teachers and college professors of Classical Greek and Latin.
