HSC Conference 2019

Lauren Allen

I am Lauren Allen, the founder of Linguas Antiquas where I teach classical languages and literature to homeschoolers in the Bay Area and online. I have a degree in History from UC San Diego and have extensively studied Classical Latin since 2012 and Attic Greek since 2014. I also have experience in Medieval Latin, Homeric Greek, Old English, linguistics, and history. I am a homeschooling parent with a deep appreciation for learning. I passionately enjoy my subject area and continue every day to improve my skills and knowledge — chasing new threads, tying up old ones, and going down new avenues which can lead me to greater insight. I believe that real knowledge shouldn’t be covered up, hidden until ‘prerequisites’ are met, or dumbed down. As a homeschooling parent, I hope for my children to be able to experience this true, deep learning and, as an instructor, it is always my goal to foster this kind of learning in my students. When I’m not teaching, you can find me exploring the world with my small people, doing body combat, or reading Latin and Greek.
