Alecia Rolling (Prima Veritas)
Her blog name is a play on words. The name Alecia can be traced back to the Greek word, alethe, which means 'truth'. Her daughter's name is a variation of the same word. This gave Mrs. Rolling the idea to call herself "first truth" and her daughter "second truth", thus in Latin prima veritas and veritas secunda.

Mrs. Rolling received a B.A. in German and Latin from the University of Southern Mississippi in 2005 and an M.A. in Classics (Latin emphasis) from the University of Nebraska in 2008. In addition, she studied German at Institut für Internationale Kommunikation in Zusammenarbeit mit der Heinrich-Heine Universität in Düsseldorf, Germany 2002-2003. Her teaching experience ranges from individual tutorials in French, Latin, German, and history to large collegiate classes in Classical Mythology and Latin. She has edited independent study courses in Latin for the University of Nebraska, and currently she is working on a Latin translation of a tenth-century papal document for publication.

Mrs. Rolling is home educating her six young children with a modified classical/Montessorian curriculum with a Charlotte Mason influence. German is the primary language spoken at home, which makes home-made curricula a necessity. She is currently director and creator for Schola Rosa: Co-op & Home Curriculum.

Kenneth Rolling is a graduate student at the Catholic University of America pursuing a Ph.D. in philosophy. He earned an M.A. in Classics, specializing in Greek, from the University of Nebraska in 2008 and a B.A. in philosophy from Benedictine College in 1999.

At times working in the university system, tutoring centers, and the homes of families, he has taught courses and tutorials on subjects as diverse as musical performance, Classical mythology, philosophy, literature, and standardized test preparation. Recently, he was the managing editor of the Review of Metaphysics and an Instructor at Homeschool Connections. Currently, he is the founder of The Rolling Acres School and working on curricular materials for homeschool co-op programs, such as Schola Rosa: Co-op & Home Curriculum. He does research on the ideas of education and beauty.
