"Hi! I'm Amanda L., and I'll be moderating Greek Myths and Ancient Romans/Aeneid. We've homeschooled from the beginning, and this is our 6th year using MP. I majored in classical languages, and I love sharing the ancient world with my three boys and many other students."

Samantha will be moderating discussion for Famous Men of Rome: "My name is Samantha, and I have been homeschooling for seven years now. I have two boys. Jacob is 11 and Ehret is 9. I work part-time at my church as the Director of Children’s Ministry. I love to work with kids. I started using Memoria Press for the 2019/2020 school year. My boys and I are really enjoying this curriculum."

"Hi, I'm Ryane (pronounced 'Ryan') and I am excited to have the opportunity to moderate the Famous Men of the Middle Ages group for the 2020-2021 academic year. This is our 11th year homeschooling and our 5th year using Memoria Press. During that time I've taught introductory Latin, composition, grammar, geography, and history both online in a virtual co-op and at our local co-op. I love that homeschooling gives me the opportunity to learn alongside my students. I live in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains with my husband, 4 children, and our labrador retriever, Daisy."

Jenn O. will be leading discussion for Book of the Ancient Greeks, The Iliad, and The Odyssey: "We have been classical homeschoolers for 8 years using Memoria Press's full core curriculum and have successfully completed Kindergarten thru 7th grade. This will be my first year moderating a virtual discussion group, although I do this regularly in person and participated in Delectare previously. My side kick is an 18 pound Maine Coon who may or may not make unannounced cameos!"

Kailyn will be discussing 4th Grade Literature: "I am a high school senior moderating my first class, although I also teach children as a chimes choir director, Sunday school teacher, VBS teacher, and church summer camp assistant. I also sing and dance, play bells, piano, and violin, and run Cross Country and Track. I am planning on studying math at University."

"I’m Christy and I will be moderating 6th and 9th grade literature. This is my fifth year moderating Memoria Press discussion groups. I have moderated both classical studies and literature. We started our schooling experience at the main Highlands Latin School in Louisville, but a job change forced us to move. We knew there was nothing like an HLS education, so we went straight from going to the school to homeschooling with Memoria Press materials. For the ‘20-21 school year I will be homeschooling 10th, 8th, 5th, and 2nd grade boys. I also spend a lot of time teaching at our coop, where I get to put my lawyer hat back on to teach classes like Intro to Law, Mock Trial, and Constitution."

Kristin will be leading discussions for Renaissance and Reformation Times, The Divine Comedy, The Republic and The Laws, On Obligations, and The City of God: "I am the administrator for Vita Beata, this is my 4th year moderating online discussions, and my 9th year using Memoria Press products. My husband and I have 2 daughters - Annika, a graduate studying Aerospace Engineering, and Kailyn, a senior who will be moderating her own class. I am also Deputy Commander of a Civil Air Patrol Squadron and an AmeriCorps member working with at-risk youth."
