Laura’s passion for classical education began when she was introduced to it directly out of college. She taught 3rd grade for the Augustine School in Jackson, TN, before moving to Louisville in 2007. While in Louisville, Mrs. Bateman taught fourth grade at Highlands Latin School for four years. During that time she taught First and Second Form Latin at Highlands Latin School and fell in love with Latin. This is also when she began teaching Latin courses for Memoria Press. Her family has since moved to Bloomfield, KY, where she continues to teach Latin online and share Latin derivatives in casual conversation.
