Susan Strickland, a native of California, earned a BA in Music (Vocal Performance) from UCLA and began teaching Latin twenty years ago to her own children while homeschooling. For some inexplicable reason she became addicted to studying Latin and has not stopped since. She continued her studies in Latin literature at the University of Southern Maine. In addition to teaching her own children, Mrs. Strickland has taught in a number of venues, from one-on-one tutoring and a homeschool co-op to public and Classical schools to MPOA. She enjoys editing, developing, and writing Latin curricula as well. Having used Memoria Press Latin curricula for years, she is thrilled to be part of the faculty of MPOA to teach Third and Fourth Form Latin as well as the National Latin Exam prep courses. Her recent delight has been to be the instructor for MPOA’s new adult Latin classes. Mrs. Strickland lives in Maine with her husband of 34 years, Frank, who is an accountant and avid hiker. They have three grown children and three grandchildren. She has sung professionally in the mid-coast region of Maine and enjoys good coffee and conversation, reading, swimming, biking, and pizza on the beach. She is a member of Grace Reformed Baptist Church.
