Justin Slocum Bailey is the ultimate educator. He brings to every one of his pursuits extensive knowledge, curiosity about both language and people, a sense of humor, and an extraordinary ability to connect. As I strive to improve my own teaching, I try to channel what I have seen in him. He is thorough, clear, exciting, talented, interesting, and fun.

Serve Your Students. Grow as a Teacher.

Whether you're teaching level 1 or 5, whether you've been teaching for 3 years or 33, whether you're using a textbook or not, you have things you want your students to learn and do better, and you have ways in which you want to grow as a teacher.

Coming up with ideas and materials to facilitate this learning takes time and confidence that are a luxury for many Latin teachers. 

Building skills as a teacher takes time and effort, and it can be hard to know what skills and strategies are worth this time and effort.

The resources, training, and support in the TeachHuman Latin Teacher Lab simplify all of this for you.

From ready-made materials to carefully crafted units, from daily routines to expert teacher moves, from tried-and-true lessons to direct guidance on your specific teaching situation, the Latin Teacher Lab provides things you need in order to be a calmer, more effective, more confident teacher.





Justin Slocum Bailey took a language most people consider long dead and brought it to life as if it were the lyrics to my son’s favorite song. He not only taught him the joys of language—all language—but he also inspired him to approach life as a deep thinker, a global communicator, and a passionate advocate for the interconnectedness of all people. And he ignited in him a passion for learning that has extended into every part of his life. I will be forever grateful.

About Justin Slocum Bailey

I'm Justin. I created TeachHuman and the Latin Teacher Lab to make your teacher-life better.

I've been a teacher (of Latin, language arts, guitar, test prep, and martial arts) for sixteen years and a teacher-trainer for ten. In the process, I've been invited to share ideas with teachers in 11 countries and 31 U.S. states, and I've gotten to learn new things myself at every stop.

I am head over heels about helping teachers and learners succeed with less stress and more joy, and Latin teachers and learners have a special place in this endeavor. As a founding host of the Quomodo Dicitur? podcast, a long-time board member and instructor for the North American Institute for Living Latin Studies (SALVI), and a frequent presenter at international conferences, I bring joyful Latin teaching methods wherever I can. I also helped design, over the course of several years, the International Baccaulaureate's (IB) upcoming revised Diploma Programme for Classical Languages, an experience that widened my understanding of the issues Latin teachers face in various teaching contexts.

I'm thrilled to be able to distill what I've learned into the Latin Teacher Lab so that you can confidently help all kinds of learners acquire and enjoy Latin!

When I'm not teaching or helping other teachers, I'm writing and making music, playing board games, podcasting, or chatting on a porch. I hope we get to chat sometime, whether online or in person! If you have questions about this or any other program, please feel free to get in touch.

Salve!

Justin speaks Latin in a way that is expressive and authentic, full of idiom and careful, deliberate word choice. He also speaks in a way that is inviting to those around him, using his humor, his kindness, and his intuition to engage people in conversations whose purpose is not just to practice a foreign language but also to connect as people.

One of the most inspiring teachers, and humans, I've had the pleasure of knowing.

Justin has astonishing vision for big-picture language-learning goals and how to achieve them through day-to-day, small-picture processes.

Justin Slocum Bailey makes me feel calm and capable.

JSB is my new hero. I mean, I really enjoyed watching him work and hearing him speak. He's authentic, intelligent, sincere. The real deal.

Justin’s enthusiasm and sense of humor were amazing!

I know of no one in education, over my 35 years of experience, who has done more wonderful things and has more to offer than you do.

I truly didn’t want today to end! This is the type of professional development that teachers crave.

One of the best speakers I have seen in my entire career!!

My new mantra is "Teach like JSB is watching!"

Awesome energy!

Justin's ease with students is pure magic.

Whenever I face a pedagogical decision, however big or small, I ask myself, "What would Justin do?"

Holy gifted batman! Justin's command of a classroom is amazing.

I learned a mountain of wonderful strategies!

He was so engaging and so entertaining. SUCH a great speaker and so inspirational!

I've never met a teacher more excited for or more skilled at teaching a language through whatever methods work for his students, whether they be formal and traditional or cutting-edge.

Quería darte las gracias por la clase de hoy, en verdad fue muy divertido e inspirador. Estaré al pendiente de tu vuelta a México para volver a tomar otro taller. ¡Gracias!

Ausgezeichnet! Your energy and true caring shone through so beautifully.

Justin is an amazing presenter.

One of the greatest teachers I have ever encountered.

His enthusiasm and engagement model so well.

You treated everyone in the class like they mattered PERSONALLY to you. You looked them in the eyes, you remembered their names, you TOLD them they were interesting. You were laughing, they were laughing, and you let the mistakes be part of the fun. Their successes were yours - you were EXCITED by their success.

What I appreciated most was the specific activities I learned, combined with Justin’s willingness to engage with our questions and ideas.

An amazing experience.

Your (Justin's) exemplary skills + empathy + humor. An inspiring model.

A totally accomplished and expert presenter! I will be studying this presentation in depth.

The kind of teacher/presenter I'd like to have a beer with.

I learned by experience that I really can do this!
