Kevin Vailes teaches whatever they ask him at the Augustine School in Jackson, though if he had his choice he would spend his time ruminating on the intricate complexities of the classical world and trying to get his Latin students to study their vocabulary.

They live in the Jackson’s historic LANA neighborhood in a 100+ year-old bungalow with their five children.
