Everett was homeschooled for twelve years. He then entered the Army and was deployed in Afghanistan, coming home with a purple heart. In 2014 Everett Harvey received his B.S. degree in Economics from UNCC and now does data analysis for Tire Intelligence. He is passionate about old books, legos, and his wife (in reverse order). He is married to the delightful Mattie, who is a director of the Department of Supplemental Instruction at the University of NC in Charlotte. And one of his favorite things to do these days is listen to Econ Talk podcasts and find someone to discuss this subject with!
Greek and Roman History
Beth Harvey has been teaching Latin since 1998. She taught for years in different classical schools, from Colorado to Charlotte. For many summers, she has enjoyed getting to know homeschoolers around the country through the moms' Latin workshops offered at her website, SummerLatin.org. She received her B.A. in English from the University of Central Florida (Orlando, FL) and was inspired to teach Latin by studying the subject with Dr. Grote at UNCC in the late 90s.
Beth and Bob homeschooled their three sons for over twenty years--now they continue to home school themselves! Phillip graduated from Covenant College and William & Mary Law School and is now an attorney in Memphis. Everett received his B.S. in Economics in 2014 after a stint in the 82nd Airborne, which included a long deployment in Afghanistan. Conrad, the youngest son, is too busy for college. He leads a band, writes songs, does voice-acting for an income, and schemes about how to take over the world (think, Pinky and the Brain)!
Kaitlin Hundscheid graduated from New Saint Andrews College with a B.A. in Liberal Arts and Culture. While in school, she developed a love of Latin and devoted her time to studying it. Her efforts culminated in developing a literary translation of the short medieval epic Waltharius for her senior thesis project.
After graduating, Kaitlin went on to teach for two years at a classical Christian school in Northern Virginia where she was able to share her love of Latin with her students. Kaitlin has experience teaching Latin to a wide range of ages, teaching 5th and 6th grade as well as high school students. She especially enjoys teaching her students conversational Latin, reminding them that a language isn't truly dead if someone, somewhere still speaks it.
Kaitlin currently lives in Tuscaloosa, Alabama with her husband, John. She teaches 3rd grade at a local Christian classical school. Kaitlin's favorite books on education include Gilbert Highet's The Art of Teaching, James S. Taylor's Poetic Knowledge: The Recovery of Education, and Jean Leclercq's The Love Learning and the Desire for God: A Study of Monastic Culture.

Grace Kosloski has a master's degree in English from the University of Missouri in Columbia and a Ph.D. in English from the University of Utah. Her four doctoral areas were 20th-century British and American poetry, 19th-century British and American romanticism, George Herbert (the 17th-century British metaphysical poet), and 20th-century American drama. Both her master's thesis and creative dissertation were books of poems. She studied poetry writing with Larry Levis, Sherod Santos, Mark Strand, Richard Howard, and Jacqueline Osherow.
As she was earning her degrees, she taught various levels of composition and expository writing for the universities where she studied, as well as several classes in creative writing (poetry and fiction), literature, technical writing, and study and reading skills. Later, as a homeschool mom, she taught several classes for her homeschool community, including Great Books, Study Skills, Introduction to Literature, and Introduction to Debate and Argumentation, which she developed into a National Christian Forensics and Communications Association (NCFCA) speech and debate club. For two years she served as the NCFCA state representative for Utah.
Grace homeschooled her two children through high school. Her son is an attorney in Colorado; her daughter is beginning a master's in chemistry at the University of Utah. She and her husband live in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where they attend an Anglican church. Grace is an affiliate instructor for Colorado Christian University.

Advisor in rhetoric and world views study.
Christine Finnegan has her B.S. in Music Education from the University of Maryland, College Park. While homeschooling her own two sons, Christine became passionate about classical Christian education. After her sons graduated from homeschool and continued to college, she had additional time to devote to her own learning, and to planning and implementing classes for other homeschoolers. She has been teaching a variety of classes (including music history, appreciation, and choral arts, English composition, history, and worldviews classes) in a variety of settings (including Christian school, home school co-op, on-line school, and private tutoring) for more than 30 years.
Christine and her husband, David, live in Los Alamos, New Mexico, where they enjoy active membership in their PCA church, the beauties of the Southern Rockies, and, skyping with their four adorable grandchildren. When she's not teaching or travelling to visit the grandchildren, Chris loves to quilt, garden, camp, and read.
One of the most formative books in Christine's understanding of classical Christian education is David Hicks' book, Norms and Nobility: A treatise on Education. She agrees with Mr. Hicks that education ought to be normative, comprehensive, and interrelated; training both the mind and the heart for service to God, and for service in the communities of which we are a part.
Advisor for Traditional Logic
Tina Maclennan is an associate tutor who is currently just advising us in the above subjects. She graduated with a B.S. from Stanford University's "Program in Human Biology"--an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the human being. Tina and her husband, Barry, currently reside in the mountains of southwestern Colorado where they built their own home and are active in a small EFCA congregation (Ouray Christian Fellowship).
Barry and Tina have eight children and began homeschooling in 1987. Early in her homeschooling endeavor, Tina taught hands-on science as well as economic courses to elementary and mid-high students in a local homeschool co-op. As her children grew, and as she slowly learned more about classical education, she began teaching logic to local students, leading parent study-gropus through formal logic and classical rhetoric in online forums, and writing and developing her own material for teaching Rhetorical Invention. Since then she has also taught or co-taught American history, apologetics, ethics, philosophy, and writing in various online venues.
The most formative and influential books on Tina's teaching have been: Susan Schaeffer Macauley's For the Children's Sake; C. S. Lewis's Abolition of Man; Albert Marrou's Education in Antiquity; Sister Miriam Joseph's Shakespeare's Use of the Arts of Language; and Crabtree, Crabtree and Julian's The Language of God.
