Kelly Songer graduated from Abilene Christian University in 1990 with a B.A. in Human Communication. She and her husband, Jimmy, lived and worked as missionaries in the Philippines for fourteen years, where all four of their children were born. Her love of languages was sparked when she studied Greek in college. She learned Tagalog while working as a missionary, and upon returning to Texas, she had the opportunity to learn Latin. She taught Latin for two years at Providence Classical School in Spring, Texas, and has been teaching Latin online since 2013. She loves teaching Latin and is eager to share her love of languages with her students. Kelly serves Wilson Hill as a teacher and as an Academic Assistant on our Academics leadership team.
One of her favorite quotes is:
“If I were asked what, of all the things I was ever taught, has been of the greatest practical use to me, I should have to answer: the Latin Grammar.” – Dorothy Sayers
