Jackie Horton, High School Classroom TeacherClassroom Teacher

BA, University of California, Los Angeles

Jackie is excited at the prospect of sharing her love of literature and the Latin language with students across the country. She is eager to lead students in studying themes and other literary devices and has never ceased to be amazed at how studying Latin facilitates critical thinking skills and cultivates an advanced English vocabulary. Having taught high-school level Classical Latin for the last thirteen years provides Jackie with a unique background to insightfully teach not only English grammar but also English vocabulary since over 70% of our advanced English words are derived from Latin roots. She is currently teaching 9th grade Literature/Composition at Apple Valley Christian School in Apple Valley, California.

When not translating Caesar or Cicero, she loves to read historical fiction, especially books that bring the Bible to life. She also enjoys running, biking, skiing (water and snow), and being outdoors basking in the sun with her husband and best friend of 33 years. Jackie currently resides in California.

She has been teaching with the Academy since 2016.
