Kari Ceaicovschi stumbled upon Latin when registering for a language as an undergraduate at the University of Montana. Twenty-three years later with an M.A. from Stanford and a Ph.D. from the University of Washington in the classics, she continues to be an enthusiastic advocate for the study of Latin and inspires her students to feel the same way about the language. Kari has taught Latin at all levels, with most of her experience in the classroom coming from teaching middle school Latin for seven years in a classical Christian school in Washington State. Now the mother of two boys, both of whom are studying Latin, Kari is learning judo, baseball, and soccer (vicariously), and has a new found appreciation for Legos. She also enjoys working in her vegetable garden, canning fruits and veggies, and serving the church in the altar guild and as a council member.
