st. anne's-belfield schoolSt. Anne’s-Belfield School Latin teacher and Upper School World Languages Department Chair Brandtly Jones was honored by the Society for Classical Studies (SCS) with its 2015 Award for Excellence in Teaching at the Precollegiate Level. The award was announced at the January 9, 2016 Plenary Session of the SCS Annual Meeting, this year held in San Francisco.

“At the heart of Dr. Jones’ courses lies a strong commitment to project based learning, a strategy that is often difficult to implement with true rigor and excellent results, especially at the most advanced levels of language learning,” reads the Brandtly Jones Precollegiate Award Citation, which also notes Jones’ use of technology in his classes.

Jones began teaching at St. Anne’s-Belfield School after earning his Ph.D. in classics from Cornell University in 2008. In addition to teaching Upper School Latin he has overseen the Latin program for grades seven through twelve, mentored new faculty members, and served as chair of the World Languages Department, among other responsibilities.
