Welcome Ms Blount Smith’s Web Page.  This is  the location for those involved with the ancients, for the most part, but also for the moderns with the study of Etymology.  My e-mail address is bsmith@bartlettschools.org and my classroom is E 11.  This classroom has been my home for 43 years.

 

My daily schedule is as follows

         Period one  Latin I 

         Period two         Mythology

         Period three         Latin II H, III H< IV H

         Period four  Latin II

         Period five Etymology Honors

         Period six            Planning

         Period seven        Mythology

Welcome to the pages of the Latins of Rome, Classical Mythology, and Etymology. My classes are oriented in things from long ago; but these things are very relevant today.
