About the Authors


Karen Moore

Karen is the lead author for the LA series, much of which is based on her own teaching experience in Christian classical education.  Karen began her study of Latin in seventh grade, and added Greek to her linguistic studies during her college years. Karen earned a B.A. in Classics from the University of Texas in 1996.  Since that time she has taught Latin to students in grades three through twelve (alongside Greek and Ancient Humanities).  Since 2002 Karen has served the families of Grace Academy of Georgetown, a classical Christian school, where she has been a teacher, an administrator, and the sponsor of a local chapter of the Junior Classical League.  Karen is the co-author of the Libellus de Historia History Reader Series and the Latin Alive! textbook series.  She has also published a Latin for Teachers DVD set based on her highly acclaimed training camp for teachers.
