Mrs. Kathryn McKeever
Mrs. Kathryn McKeever returns to Veritas Classical Academy where she previously taught Secondary History, Literature, and Rhetoric. She graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts from Thomas Edison University. She has over twenty years of experience teaching in the home education community, where she educated her three sons. Because she loves Shakespeare, she started the Upstart Crow Shakespeare Theatre group which ran for fifteen years. She believes deeply in the importance of learning to communicate great ideas well and has also served as a coach and board member for a local Speech and Debate club for homeschooled students since 2008.
Mrs. McKeever also serves on staff at her church as the lead teacher for a class of fifty adults with disabilities. She enjoys using classical methods to help her adult students internalize biblical truths that seemed out of reach to them before. She believes that the Classical Education model offers powerful tools for understanding truth at every skill level.
Mrs. McKeever loves reading, gardening, playing frisbee with her dogs, debating public policy with her adult sons and sitting on the front porch with her husband. She fights an ongoing battle with powdery mildew in her garden and is on a mission to avoid social media entanglements, regardless of the temptations. A favorite scripture is Philippians 3: 12-14: “Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”
“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” -Micah 6:8
