Mrs. Joanna Piris

Hello! I am Magistra Piris and I am the Latin teacher here at Florida High. Currently, I serve as World Language department chair and 9th Grade sponsor.  In the wider educational community, I also serve my professional organization, the Classical Association of Florida (CAF), as a Creatives Chair on the Regional Latin Forum board and Projects Chair on the FJCL State Forum planning committee.  This is my 7th year at Florida High and 13th year teaching in total.

I'm passionate about my subject and sharing it with my students - helping them to learn about Latin and the classics in and out of the classroom. We're going to have a great year!
