  • Salvete!  Micheal Posey, Latin teacher, is currently in his third year with the Mountain Brook School system.  

    Posey holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Dartmouth College in Romance Languages: Spanish and French, coupled with equal coursework in Classics: Latin and Ancient Greek; and a Master’s Degree in Spanish Language and Literature from Middlebury College along with post-graduate work at other institutions.  He considers himself a lifetime learner!

    In Poseyʻs teaching tenure, he has been recognized five times as a National Endowment of the Humanities (NEH) grant recipient.  Posey's latest NEH summer seminar (2022) focused on a three-week deep-dive into "Timeless Parallels:  Veteran Voices and Classical Literature."  This institute enabled secondary school teachers to develop curricula that draw parallels between the experience of veterans in the modern and ancient worlds, exploring such issues as homecoming and reintegration into civilian life.  

    Most recently, Posey was selected for the Fulbright Teachers for Global Classrooms, a program sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.  

    Professionally, Posey is currently a Writing and Steering Committee member of the National Latin Exam and also Chair of the National Pegasus Mythology Exam. Posey has been a featured presenter at several local, regional, and national professional conferences on utilizing online formative assessments and incorporating current educational technology in the world language classroom.

    A crock-pot slow-cooker, neighborhood jogger, and enthusiast of a panoply of world languages and cultures, Posey has traveled extensively in the Americas and Europe and is most passionate about introducing students to meaningful global opportunities and world-connected learning.
