Mrs. Rachel Ortego teaches grammar school Latin at CSW. She holds a Bachelor of Art in Psychology from Bryan College in Dayton, Tenn.
Mrs. Ortego has been married to Wade Ortego, head of school, for 20 years. They have three boys — Matthew (9th grade), Elijah (8th grade) and Jedidiah (3). Their family attends Eastminster Presbyterian Church.
In her spare time, Mrs. Ortego loves to read, sing, play piano and spend time with her family.
Mrs. Ortego says she is encouraged by the involvement of the CSW community and getting to know students and families. She also is inspired by her students and seeing their faces when they realize they can learn a difficult language.
“I love that we are teaching our children to think, reason, and love what is true, good, and beautiful,” she said.
