Full-Time Latin Position: Rye City School District

The Rye City School District in Westchester County has an opening for a full-time Latin teacher, with the assignment split between middle school and high school (adjacent buildings, so no travel involved).  This is an excellent opportunity to work in a strong program where Latin is offered in grades 6-12.  New York State Latin certification is required; additional certification in French or Spanish would be helpful, but is not required.  Send a cover letter and resume to:

Elaine Cuglietto
Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources
Rye City School District
411 Theodore Fremd Avenue, Suite 100S
Rye, New York 10580

Dear CAES Members,

It is with deep sadness that I notify you of the sudden passing of CAES Board member and friend, Joe (Joseph) Crisafulli. He suffered an unknown medical condition and died on a hiking trail near his home outside of Syracuse where his body was found in the afternoon on Tuesday, May 26th. He has dedicated innumerable years of his life in the advocacy of Latin and the Classics and he will be missed greatly. His dedication and willingness to do whatever he could to help others will be felt in every aspect of the CAES Institute in October as he has played a vital role in the planning and organizing of this upcoming Institute in Syracuse. I am sure there are many of you who have fond and cherished memories or pictures of Joe and you may want to share them with his family. The family has given their permission to share Joe and Josie's (his wife) address with you for this purpose: 8332 Zenith Drive, Baldwinsville, NY 13027.

Below is a link to his official obituary with visitation and funeral service information if you would like to leave the family a message, send flowers, or make a donation to the charity of the family's choosing of St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. CAES is sending flowers and ATLAS is sending flowers and making a donation in his name.

Kitrina Finlayson
Vice President, CAES

2015 Annual Institute Update

Planning for the 52nd CAES Annual Institute has been underway since last October, and we are busy finalizing our program. Soon we hope to make an exciting announcement about our keynote speaker. Several workshops, but not all, have been scheduled into the program. Perhaps there is something you would like to present? If you are interested in conducting a workshop, leading a discussion forum, or presenting a paper, please submit a proposal via this link:

We are particularly interested in members who may wish to lead a 1-hour hands-on workshop on their favorite bit of technology that they use with students.

Please keep checking the CAES website for more information regarding rooms, registration, the program, the banquet and our fantastic keynote speaker. Vale,

Michael Kutny
President, Classical Association of the Empire State
