Maybe I can help. We probably have similar pronunciation (I'm in the NE, too)

In Latin class, I was taught you say "ae" as our English word "eye".
Thus, Caesar would be KIE-sar. See-zer is the most common pronunciation in the NE, however.

I have seen "ae" used as a letter before, but I don't know what it was called.
