Hello! I’m Kira Romberg, and I am a senior at Sage Ridge School. I am the Virtual Events & Service Team Lead and the Communications Coordinator/Board Liaison. This is my sixth year of Latin, and I am currently taking AP Latin. This is my third year on the state board, and I can tell it is getting better every year. Outside of JCL, I enjoy skiing, mountain biking, and playing video games. My favorite part of JCL is meeting new people, so I hope to see you soon!

I have been a teacher of Latin and the Classics for 21 years, the last twelve at Liberty High School. My teaching career began in Virginia, my native state, after receiving a BA in Classical Civilization and Theatre from the College of William and Mary. I also serve as an instructor of Latin and Greek at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and an adjunct Education instructor at Nevada State College. In my spare time, I pursue my other chief passions as a hard rock vocalist and spends quality down time with my wife and three dogs.

I joined The Meadows School - and the JCL - in 2013, having previously held visiting Professorships at Brooklyn College in NYC and Kenyon College in Central Ohio. As a California native, I began my study of the Greek, Latin, and the Classics as an undergraduate at Santa Clara University before completing my PhD at the University of Virginia. In my free time, I enjoy cycling, traveling the world, and spending time with my cat, Minerva.
