    Thank you for being an educator.

    Over the past 394 years, many of my relatives were teachers and professors in Massachusetts, it's not an easy job if you take is seriously.

    This was the first public school formed in America. It was started to teach Latin grammar to boys ages 8 through 15. This school's main focus was to prepare boys for college. The reason for learning Latin was for the interpretion of the bible. Religion was one of the main reasons for beginning of education.
