    Mr. Jeff Della Rocco Email :jeffdellarocco@gmail.com  
I grew up in Pleasanton Texas and went on to attend Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas.  After graduating with a double major in History and Philosophy in December of 2014, I went on to complete a Master's Degree in Late-Medieval European history at the University of Chicago in June of 2016. My love for the Latin language stems from studying it as an undergraduate, as well as using it for research purposes while completing my MA thesis. I come from a family of educators, feel at home in the classroom, and thoroughly enjoy spreading an appreciation for Latin in my classroom.
