To Coin A Phrase

Monday March 12th 2007, 7:49 am

My neighbor Zee Ann Poerio is in the news again. Zee teaches at a nearby Catholic elementary school, where she’s founded a Latin club and pioneered teaching methods using ancient coins. My kids and I saw her Latin club present a pageant at local Barnes & Noble. It was a knockout. The students sang in Latin, staged skits based on the ancient myths, and at the end of it all raffled off real ancient coins. Zee is one of the directors of Ancient Coins for Education. We use old coins in homeschooling our kids, too. They love it. We used this kit.
