Anna’s students can expect to be so engaged in Socratic discussion that they barely notice the time go by. By telling stories, she brings the past to life. Anna likes to include  lesser-known elements of the history of subjects—a “behind the scenes” account that intrigues students and sparks their desire to research beyond the classroom content. She loves cultivating a learning environment that centers on Christ and involves discovering the treasure of His wisdom.

Raised in the Texas Hill Country amid farming and ranching, Anna went on to earn a Bachelor of Interior Design degree from Texas Tech University, specializing in historic preservation and restoration. Along with working on historic design projects over the last twenty years, she followed her passion for training young minds and taught in public and private schools before homeschooling her three children full-time. Anna holds a Master of Arts in history from Liberty University and is nearing completion of her doctorate in history from Liberty University.

In her spare time, Anna works with museums and municipalities on archival and curation projects. She has presented on various Texas histories as well as the history of education, namely John Calvin’s influence on the American Founders’ education. Anna holds dear the reading of her Bible and the works of many favorite theologians. Her love for the theology of hymns has her listening to them daily. Anna’s family has gratefully been involved with Wilson Hill Academy since 2016. They have moved often over the years and now spend their time between the Texas Hill Country, Texas Panhandle and Virginia.
