Mr. David Vines


My name is David Vines.

I have been teaching at HTHS since 2012.  I currently teach Latin I, Latin II, Advanced Latin II, Advanced Latin III, and AP Latin using a variety of texts including Latin for the New Millenium.

I graduated from Samford University with a Bachelor of Arts in Classics (Latin and Greek).

I occasionally lead educational trips overseas under the name Global Adventures.


  • Latin I - An introductory Latin course.  I use the Latin for the New Millenium Level 1 textbook and provide a variety of projects.  Basic grammar.

    Latin II - An intermediate Latin course.  I use Ecce Romani II/Latin for the New Millenium textbooks and provide a variety of projects.  Advanced grammar.

    Latin III - An advanced Latin course.  I use Latin for the New Millenium textbook in conjunction with a variety of additional Latin texts.  Very translation intense.

    AP Latin - Advanced Placement preparatory course.  This course is meant to prepare the student to take the Latin AP test.
