Biology and Chemistry

Shari Kaiser

A lifelong interest in learning led my husband and I to homeschooling. It has been a pleasure to be personally involved in molding the individual strengths and personalities each of our children were given to prepare them to serve God’s purpose. We have four successful homeschool graduates. 

 

I have been actively involved in the homeschool community since 1995. I served as Director of a support group (GRACE) for 13 years and Director of the area association (CHEA) for 8 years. These opportunities allowed me to interact with many fellow homeschoolers, both those seasoned in the journey as well as those just starting out. We have all enjoyed learning from and supporting each other. I have also been able to share my strong interest in science with the community since 2007, beginning with Chemistry classes. I’ve taught science classes in a variety of locations since: at the Teen Learning Center, out of my home, and at area coops and enrichment facilities. I look forward each year to helping my students see that science is fascinating, fun and understandable.

 

 

 

Spanish Immersion

Levels 1, 2 and 3

Carmen Hartzell

I was born in the historic city of Querétaro, in the Country of México, on December 25 th into a family of educators who instilled in me the love of learning and teaching. At age 11 I arrived in Charleston, NC where I was home-schooled by my mother in Spanish and at the same time attended an American School; as a result, I began to build my bilingual path. Eventually, we moved to the Charlotte area where I graduated High School a year early and worked as a translator/interpreter for several years before marrying my husband, Matt, and becoming a stay-at-home mom to my wonderful children, Breanna and Brandon. I take advantage of my personal experience in order to implement my teaching methods. 

 

In addition to this, after gaining priceless experience by teaching the Spanish Language in a North Carolina public school, I became certified by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. I have successfully completed College-Level Spanish I, II, III, and IV and continue attending College. I am currently working as a Spanish Immersion Instructor/tutor to a wide array of learners ranging from preschoolers to adults. I enjoy art, painting, sewing, cooking, baking, reading, writing, and teaching. At the heart of everything that I do is my passion for education and my commitment to my students’ success. This will be my fifth-year teaching High School Spanish at Pathway. I am truly grateful and elated to be part of the Pathway Christian Co-op’s team, and to share my knowledge of the Spanish Language and Culture with the students!

See, the Bible tells us in Psalm 24:1 that He owns it all: “The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof” (KJV).” – Dave Ramsey

Introduction to Computer Systems

Matthew Graham

I earned a BS in Sociology with a minor in Psychology from Iowa State University and an MA in Religion from Southern Evangelical Seminary.  My career in IT began with my graduate studies at Southern Evangelical Seminary back in 2003. I worked full time doing IT during the day and went to seminary at night. My passion was for ancient and medieval philosophy and I originally intended to pursue Ph.D. work and teach medieval philosophy. However, over time I found that a career in IT was both interesting and far more capable of assuring financial stability for my family.

To date, I have done IT work for K12, higher education, the financial industry, and for Microsoft. My current role at Vanguard enables me to work on IT infrastructure during the day and still pursue other interests at night and on weekends.

Outside of work, I like to read books and articles on theology, philosophy, psychology, anthropology, history, science, and technology. I am blessed to be able to leverage this learning through my involvement with apologetics ministries. My wife and I have spent many evenings delivering talks to and engaging in discussions with college students at Winthrop University, UNCC, and Colorado State University. We have also been speakers at the National Apologetics conference in Charlotte, NC and were involved with the evangelical ministry of Southern Evangelical Seminary called TEAMS.
