Franny Antoniadis graduated from Canisius College in 1991, earning her bachelor’s degree in History with a concentration in the Classics. At this time, Franny received the Monsignor Francis O’Malley Award for Academic Excellence and was inducted into the Alpha Sigma Lambda Honor Society. She began teaching Latin in the Nichols Middle School in 1996. Franny describes Nichols as “the epicenter of positive energy in Western New York.” Introducing Middle School students to the joys and wonders of the ancient culture and language of the Romans is her life’s passion: “He studied Latin like the violin, because he liked it.” (Robert Frost’s “Death of the Hired Man”) Most recently, Franny earned her master’s degree in Differentiated Instruction from Canisius College in 2009. Franny has served as past President of the Classical Association of Western New York. The School’s Latin program was previously awarded the ‘Outstanding Latin Program in New York State’ by the Classical Association of the Empire State.
