NYC Leader
Lyla Cerulli

Lyla Cerulli teaches Latin at an all-girls' Catholic school. She received her MA in Teaching Adolescent Latin from Hunter College in the Spring of 2020. Lyla has also received her BA in Classics and Psychology at Binghamton University in 2017.


Her undergraduate thesis "Compressa Est: A Script Theory Analysis of Rape Culture in Plautus Comedies," was inspired by the parallels she saw between Roman and modern comedy during her time as a stand-up comedian.


When she's not surrounded by Latin, Lyla enjoys embroidery, cooking, and other traditionally feminine activities which will come in handy when the apocalypse comes.
