MA, Yale University
A native of nearby Morris, CT, Justin attended Wamogo Regional High School in Litchfield, where he was a National Merit Finalist, an all-state trombonist, and a captain of the varsity cross country, indoor track, and outdoor track teams. After graduating from Wamogo, Justin matriculated at Yale University, where he served as editor-in-chief of the undergraduate Classics journal, principal trombonist of the concert band, and president of the club running team. After earning both a B.A. and an M.A. in Classics, he spent two years teaching Latin on Nantucket before embarking on a Ph.D. in Classics at UC Berkeley. Justin is thrilled to be teaching AP Latin while Mrs. Parente is on maternity leave and he is back home in Connecticut to work on his doctoral dissertation.
