"I loved your enthusiasm and obvious love for Latin, and enjoyed your digressions—wonderful tidbits to keep students engaged. You make this 'dead' language come alive." —Charla Adams, Alpha Omega Academy, Texas

"Karen Moore is a great speaker, fun to listen to, and highly knowledgeable. I am [coming] away from this seminar feeling confidently equipped to begin using this [Latin for Children] curriculum. I was also inspired to stretch myself and go beyond what I am going to be teaching." —Debbie Redinger, Olive Branch Christian Academy, California
