Ms. Bethanie Kenderdine

Salvete! My name is Ms. Kenderdine (but my students call me Magistra) and I am the new Latin teacher at West! I am excited to bring Latin back to my alma mater (that's Latin!) and I know that we are going to have an amazing school year. 2021-2022 is my 11th year teaching. I graduated from the College of Charleston with degrees in Classics (Latin) and Art History. 

First and foremost, I believe in building relationships and community with my students. I work hard to create a safe, caring, encouraging, and engaging educational environment in my classroom and I expect for my students to do the same. Secondly, Latin is not a dead language! It is an eternal language just as Rome is the "eternal city"! Latin and the legacy of the ancient Romans can be seen all around us every day!
