Charles Giglio teaches life when he teaches Latin.
“I try to link the present and the past,” he said; that includes “philosophy, theology, medicine, law, art, and architecture.”
A trip to the nation’s capital — the “new Rome” — is “a culmination of their five years with me,” he said. His students at the Gloversville Enlarged School District and their families attend a dinner dance on the banks of the Potomac River, and take the Amtrak train as they travel away from Albany.
“They see a different view of civilization than their hometown,” Giglio said.
