The Tirones Project  is an initiative of NCLG directed at supporting Latin teachers and encouraging them to stay in the classroom. Although the name reveals that the primary focus is the support of new teachers (tiro = newbie), we recognize that all Latin teachers benefit from interaction with one another. Currently we have no upcoming webinars, but invite tirones to see our website resources.

NCLG, as a part of its Tirones Project, has hosted webinars and encouraged new and experienced teachers to become part of the ACL Mentoring Program.  ACL provides this Mentoring Program for all levels. Click here to request a mentor or to become a mentor. https://aclclassics.org/mentoring

American Classical League's Mentor Series offers virtual sessions, designed to support new teachers nationwide.  Teachers in their first, second, and third years are invited to regular Zoom meetings on select Thursdays throughout the year with the goal of building connections with ACL colleagues, crowd-sourcing common issues, and receiving guidance from a cohort of veteran Latin and Classics teachers.  Mentors have included Patrick Yaggy, David Pellegrino, Stefanie Gigante, Matthew Crutchfield, Mark Keith, Meghan Kiern, Kellie Baglio, William Lee, Mary Beinemann and Maureen Lamb.
