Jackie Horton

BA, University of California, Los Angeles

Jackie Horton earned her BA in English at UCLA but has most recently earned a Post Graduate Certificate with Distinction in Latin from the University of Wales, UK. She is currently working towards an MA in classical studies.

Jackie is excited at the prospect of sharing her love of the Latin language with students across the country. Ever since she introduced Latin to her own four children 15 years ago, she has never ceased to be amazed at the incredible tool it is to impart English grammar, exercise critical thinking skills, and cultivate an advanced English vocabulary. For her children, it also served as an excellent springboard to the study of modern Romance languages like Spanish and French. Though her children have grown, Jackie has continued to teach Latin at the elementary, middle school, and high school levels for the last 8 years at Trinity Pacific Christian School in Southern California.

When not translating Caesar or Cicero, she loves to read historical fiction, especially any books that bring to life the ancient places of the Bible. She also enjoys running, biking, skiing (water and snow), and generally just being outdoors basking in the sun with her husband and best friend of 30 years. Jackie currently resides in California.

She has been teaching with the Academy since 2016.

    During this course, students will learn to:

    • Translate passages from Latin to English and English to Latin at a beginning level.
    • Understand the cultural, social, religious, political, and economic environment in which classical Latin was spoken, written, and read.
    • Understand how this legacy impacts western civilization and America today.
    • Identify the Latin roots of many English words.
    • Memorize vocabulary words.
    • Conjugate verbs and decline nouns, adjectives, and adverbs.
    • Utilize grammar and syntax to improve their writing.

    Students should contact their instructor at the start of their course to inform the instructor of any foreseen schedule conflicts. 

  • What is a Live Online Class Session in Latin 2?

    In every HSLDA Academy course, students meet weekly with their instructor and classmates in an online classroom for additional teaching, discussion, Q&A, or group activities. The class sessions are interactive and are conducted using a web meeting software with video, audio, chat, and application sharing capabilities.

    Scheduled, real-time sessions in the online classroom are not the only form of instruction available in a HSLDA Online Academy course, but are offered in addition to lectures or other instructional materials that students are able to access online at their convenience.

    When they register, students will need to select a particular class section and live class meeting time. Additional class sections may be added to the schedule at a later point in the course registration period. Registered students will be notified of any changes to the live session schedule.
