Why I teach at WHCT:
I have been a homeschooling parent of four for 18 years.
WHCT has played such a key role in our homeschooling success in the middle and high school years that it is my hope to give back to this place that has meant so much to us. I desire to provide an environment conducive to learning and growth, and I am excited to play a part in equipping young people for whatever future the Lord has for them.
Learning is not just something that takes place in a classroom, or between the ages of five and eighteen. Learning should be a life-long pursuit. I believe in creating an environment where students are challenged to think critically, beyond rote memory skills, and
to discover the things they are passionate about.
I desire to equip students to, not only successfully finish their high school career, but to inspire them to continue learning.
Why I teach these specific courses:
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Education, with a minor in Biblical Studies. Teaching English III/IV, United States Government, and High School United States History combines all of the things I enjoy. I believe that it is through reading and responding to literature that we figure out who we are and how we fit into the Great Story around us.
It is my desire to provide not only a depth of exposure to great literature, and an understanding of history, but to help prepare students for success in college, or in any endeavor they may undertake.
