Captain K, some call him. That’s a fitting nickname for Latin teacher and Jesuit scholastic Tim Kieras, S.J. In his three years at St. Louis U. High, he’s crossed between the Theology and Foreign Language departments, flown to the March for Life in Washington, D.C. and World Youth Day in Brazil, and ferried his seniors through the waters of Vergil’s Aeneid. Now, having completed the regency stage of Jesuit formation, Kieras will move on next year to complete his theology studies at Boston College.
This summer, theology teacher James Burshek, S.J., will depart from his third round of teaching at St. Louis U. High to teach theology for juniors at De Smet next year.
