ffraser

Mr. Fraser has taught Latin for seven years and Greek for four.  His interest in the languages began in high school at St. Gregory’s Academy, where he learned that certain Latin words, such as “res”, could not be properly translated into English.  It bothered him that certain key Roman concepts were unintelligible outside the language.  He decided to study Classics as a way to understand these concepts that were fundamental to Roman culture. Mr. Fraser’s interest in teaching also began at St. Gregory’s.  The teachers there shared a common intellectual life, and their friendship and their learning were integrated.  His teachers, therefore, enjoyed friendships that were both rooted in truth and delightful.  This communal delight in learning is one of the principal reasons Mr. Fraser enjoys Thomas More College; the faculty and students all share a common pursuit of wisdom. Mr. Fraser holds an M.A. in Humanities from the University of Dallas, an M.A. in Greek and Latin from the Catholic University of America, and is currently a doctoral candidate at the Catholic University of America.  Authors he enjoys sharing with his students include Pindar, Horace, Virgil, and St. Augustine.  Outside of the classroom, he plays folk music on a classical guitar and roughhouses with his five children.
