Mrs. Rachel Butcher Conn
Salvete! Mihi nomen est Rachel Butcher Conn. I am thrilled to be teaching all levels of Latin for my sixth year here at Johnson High School. I teach Latin I, Latin II Regular/Honors, Latin III Regular/Honors, Latin IV Honors, and AP Latin.
I love sharing the rich language and culture of the ancient Roman world. My favorite part of teaching is getting to know my students during their time in the Latin program. If you are taking Latin this year, welcome to the family! We are a close-knit group, as each year's cohort will stay together until they graduate from AP Latin. Students in my courses can participate in a variety of extracurrcular activities. I sponsor Latin Club, Korean Culture Club, National Latin Honor Society, and the Certamen team, which competes on the regional and state level in trivia games about classical civilizations and its peoples, languages, and cultures.
Here's a little about me: In May 2013, I graduated with honors from Baylor University, where I studied Art History and Classics (Latin and Ancient Greek language and literature). I earned my masters degree in Medieval Studies from Fordham University in May 2015. I concentrated in the social and economic history of medieval England. When I am not teaching, I am probably watching or making YouTube videos, playing with my dog Gatsby, or trying to train my pet parrot Pippa not to bite my finger off. Fun fact: My husband, Ian Conn, also teaches Latin in NEISD, at McArthur and Roosevelt HS.
