About: Welcome


After being in the classroom for more than a decade, I have noticed with each semester a decline in the general knowledge of most students concerning American Government, History, and Biblical literacy. Great American Studies is my best effort to share the greatness of our nation with the next generation.  This isn’t your coach's civics course!  We define the basics in political science and history, discuss facts in context, and read great thoughts of American Statesmen.  My goal is to introduce students to the people and ideas that have made the United States the greatest nation in history, provide them with tools to discern truth, and maybe even give them a heart for history.  Join us in raising the next generation to be worthy heirs of liberty!

“The Value of Understanding History-Part 1”


     My husband and I live in Northwest Oklahoma, but also feel at home in South Carolina.  We have three children, our son is a recent graduate of Ole Miss and our two daughters are homeschooled.  
     I love teaching in the classroom.  My first teaching position was in 2004 as an adjunct instructor at our local junior college and my most recent position was with our Classical Conversations community as the Challenge I Director.
