Faculty & Staff Spotlight | Alice Barnard, Latin
What are some pets you've had or would like to own?
I am a dog person all the way, although when I lived in an apartment and couldn’t have a dog, I had a house rabbit. Currently, we have two dogs - Jemma, an English pointer who sings like Chewbacca, and Lilypad, a beagle who has the waggiest tail in the world!
What fictional character do you wish you could meet?
When I read a good book, I feel like I’m meeting the characters! I remember how much I liked Charlotte when I read “Charlotte’s Web” as a girl - the way she could choose the perfect word got me interested in vocabulary. What a great writer EB White is, to make a spider seem so sympathetic!
What do you love about Forsyth?
Forsyth has been a part of my life for more than 33 years! So many bright, thoughtful students, so many dedicated colleagues, so many wonderful families. It’s amazing to me to have the children of some of my earlier students as Latin students now - the second generation. I am so grateful to be affiliated with a school as phenomenal as Forsyth!
