February's Core Virtue is Love of Country
Love of Country is being devoted to the nation --loving its ideals, honoring its heroes, respecting its past (and learning from it) and working hard for a just and noble future.
I am a 6th year teacher of high school and middle school literature. During my time at Vanguard, I have enjoyed introducing my students to the wonders of the poetry, plays, and novels spanning Western culture over nearly 3,000 years. I have a BA in English Literature from Oral Roberts University.
I am the sponsor of the first international trip for Vanguard, to Italy, in the spring of 2021, and I coach Vanguard’s Knowledge Bowl team. I am a firm believer in classical education, because of the way it teaches my students how to think, rather than just what to think. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, traveling, making my own barbecue, perfecting my salsa recipe, and watching the Broncos.
