Museums, Movies and a Man: Delighting in Beauty

I am an art teacher. If anyone should have beauty figured out, it should be me. On the subject of beauty, I thought initially it wouldn’t be that hard to share my thoughts, or to find quite easily, the exact definition. Yet, as I dove into the waters of what is beautiful, I found myself overwhelmed by the goodness of God. I...   continue

The Highest Calling: Embody Virtue

If you are like me, you read the Portrait of a Graduate and say, “Yes! That’s what I want for my child!”  We all want our children to be “better” than ourselves.

Discovering the Wonder and Joy of Mathematics

One of the most beautiful things about language is that not only do words convey meaning, they also stir up emotions and memories. Often these are strong and visceral.

How and Why Should We Then Reason?

Throughout my 13 years at Covenant, I have taught every grade level from 6th Grade to 12th Grade. During a few of those years, I actually had the privilege of teaching Bible Survey and Logic to 7th Graders, while also teaching Greek to 12th Graders. The shift from a 7th Grade to a 12th Grade class within one or two hours was...   continue

As I Have Loved You

When students come to me for Greek I in their 10th Grade year, I like to share a little analogy with them to help them understand why we would study a “dead language” that is as challenging as classical Greek. Imagine that you meet someone from a foreign country who doesn’t speak any English. Through a translator, you...   continue


What's Love Got to Do With It?

Society would have us believe that education is solely the formation of the mind and that knowledge alone is the singular solution to all our woes. Culture is saturated with the message that the more we know, the better we become. If this is true, why do our problems seem to multiply?  Why is it that the smarter we claim to be...   continue
