Hilary holds a B.A. in Music from the University of Louisville, with minor concentrations in Italian and Medieval Studies. While at UofL, she was a member of the Cardinal Singers, a choir that competed and performed in Europe and Asia. She was a member of the third graduating class of the Highlands Latin School in 2005, studying under Martin Cothran and Cheryl Lowe. Her marriage to Albert Cesare in 2008 came with the acquisition of the perfect last name for a Latin teacher. Hilary now resides in Cincinnati, OH with their five homeschooled children and teaches music classes in a local classical homeschool co-op. She taught Latin, literature, and history for Memoria Press Online Classical Academy from 2009-2014 and is excited to return to online instruction.
