Hello, I'm Carly...
I teach 7th/8th English & Literature, as well as Lower School Physical Education.
Born: Minneapolis, MN
Education: I attended the University of Northwestern in St. Paul, Minnesota with a degree in Elementary Education with an Emphasis in English as a Second Language and a minor in Biblical Studies.
Early Career: I taught four years at Pleasant Hill Elementary in Osceola County, all subjects in 4th and 5th grade, and worked with a variety of students including gifted students and those with special needs.
Family: I have been married to my husband, Taylor, for 6 years and we have a two-year old daughter, Brynlee.
Active at Church: We've been partners of Celebration Community Church for 6 years. My husband is the Connections Director of CCC. Together, we lead a life group and I also serve on the missions team and in the KIDS44 children's ministry.
What do you love about True North Academy and the Principle Approach? The Principle Approach® and True North Academy's curriculum have reoriented my understanding of education as biblical discipleship. I love how this frees me up as a teacher to teach in a way that God intended, through starting with principles within scripture.
