This week I finished my first-year teaching online with the CiRCE Academy. I was privileged to teach Classical Rhetoric and Greek & Roman Epics to some amazing students. My encounter with these young men and women challenged me to think more clearly, read more deeply, teach more passionately, and to repent more often.

Last night I was feeling discouraged as a teacher and a parent, which usually means I need to direct my thinking to something good and true. So I checked to see what audio lectures were streaming on the CiRCE page. I was excited to find the first lecture from the Further Up & Further In - An Exploration of the Classical Quadrivium event. I began to listen to it and took in what I heard.  Andrew was discussing the mathematical arts.
