Tammy Jones graduated from Biola University in California with a B.A. in Elementary Education. She taught for several years in Christian schools, and after moving to Arizona, came home to raise and homeschool her own children. During those happy, busy years, she enjoyed homeschooling children from other families in a creative and multi-age “one-room schoolhouse” in her home.
After moving to Virginia in 2000, Tammy provided classes for homeschoolers of all ages in her community, including History, Literature, Writing for the older ones, and Science and Art for the little ones. In 2007, she helped start a Classical Conversations community and taught Challenge A (7th grade) for seven years. Tammy began teaching online in 2008, teaching History and Memory period to Grammar school children, and Great Books to middle school and high school students. She has a hard time deciding which age is her favorite to teach.
Tammy’s main focus as she works with any age is to point students to the Creator. Students who study a Biblical worldview with her will have a clear understanding of who they are and who God is. Besides learning alongside kids, Tammy loves to cook, read, garden, and travel. She and her husband Craig have just moved to Malvern, PA, where Craig is Head of School at The Phelps School. When they are not busy with students, she and Craig look forward to enjoying their new surroundings, including some trips to explore nearby Philadelphia.
