Maria Carolina James (Carla)

I am a Latin and French teacher. I am also Italian, and I lived in Milano for the first 21 years of my life. I attended Bocconi University in Milano for two years.

I have a B.S. in Latin and French and a M.A. in French and Italian from the University of Minnesota, with more post graduate credits in Latin and French. I have been teaching at Memorial for over 35 years. I taught all levels of French, Latin, as well as Italian I and II. I am passionate about Foreign Language acquisition! 

I love walking and hiking. Mountains are my go-to for vacation!

I am married and I have a son and a daughter. Both my children graduated from Memorial High School, and I am really proud of them and of their accomplishments. 

This year I teach Latin I, Latin II, Latin III pre A.P, and Latin A.P.  I monitor ISS 6th and 7th periods. My conference is 8th period. 

Tutorials are at 3:00 P.M.Mondays and Wednesdays. Sign up, please. Make-ups are any day by appointment and they can also be during 5th period lunch, since I work 5th period and I often eat lunch during 8th period. Students sign up on the calendar near the printer.

I post a new syllabus each week for each class in itsLearning. The syllabus includes objectives, daily activities, assignments as well as dates of tests and quizzes. Students are required to have the weekly syllabus with them every day: they may print it or copy activities and assignments for each day.
