Mr. Farley has experience preaching to and teaching high school and adult students (IBE). "Teaching in general is both a challenge and a delight that reaps wonderful benefits. This is certainly the case in regard to teaching the Bible. No other subject is more intellectually stimulating and personally applicable to both teacher and student. I pray that my students will grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ as a result of the high school Bible module series."
Mr. Manuel Mendoza is excited about the privilege of teaching students the Bible. He accepted Christ as his personal Savior at the age of 14. It wasn’t until he was 21 years old that he knew the Lord’s calling for his life was to preach His Word. "The Bible can convert the soul of the unbeliever, and it cleanses the soul of the believer. The Bible is important for our times, and, therefore, it must be taught accurately. For me, teaching the Bible is a great joy and privilege. My desire is to help guide your student through a life that is pleasing to Jesus Christ. My goal is for the student to strive for holy living by developing sound convictions based on God's Word."
Mr. May enjoys teaching from God’s Word. "God’s Word is powerful. It convicts, encourages, challenges, and strengthens the believer--and it is still the final and absolute authority for us today. All of God’s Word is just as relevant and applicable to us as it was to those to whom it was originally written. For these reasons it is exciting and challenging to teach the Bible to your student. My goal is that each student will deepen his knowledge of God’s Word, better understand how the Bible applies to him, and grow in his relationship with Christ."
Michael Murphy has a bachelor’s degree in history as well as a master’s degree in education with a history emphasis. He has taught World History, United States History, World Geography, and Bible in a traditional classroom for many years. He enjoys coaching mock trial, doing public address at sporting events, and playing golf. But most of all, he enjoys history—both the big themes and little details--and he hopes his students will too as he effectively communicates the course content and infuses a lot of fun into the process.
Miss Pringle's interest in literature began at an early age through her mother's almost daily reading aloud of good literature as a part of her family's school day. The past 10 years of focused study and teaching in the disciplines of Creative Writing and English have increased Miss Pringle's delight and enthusiasm in analyzing and evaluating all genres of literature. “Everyone loves a story. A well-crafted story, poem, essay, or drama delights me on several levels, but it's the benefit of gaining an increased understanding and appreciation of God's inspired literature, His Word, that motivates me to apply and grow in my own literary analysis skills and to do my best to instill in my students a similar desire for and delight in literature. It's my prayer that as we enjoy great literary works together we will be inspired to love and pursue God's truth presented in His greatest Book of literature.”
Mrs. Ericson gained her love of science from her own high school biology teacher. After earning a bachelor’s degree in biology from Bob Jones University in 1999, she went on to complete a master’s degree in secondary education. It was also at BJU that she met her husband, Geof, who teaches social studies at Bob Jones Academy. Mrs. Ericson has been a part of BJU Press Distance Learning for over 15 years. While she was finishing her education, she served as an assistant to the biology teacher before coming on as a part of the science faculty. She hopes that through science, her students will see the glory and power of their Creator God and desire to serve Him with their whole heart.
Dr. Seibert has over 15 years teaching experience in Christian education. She has grown up desiring to be a teacher, and she desires to instill in her students a love for learning. Her main goal in teaching grammar is to show how English follows a logical pattern. God’s Word states that "knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth" (Proverbs 14:6). Gaining knowledge is hard when a student does not understand what he is trying to learn. Therefore, understanding is the key to gaining knowledge. In teaching literature, Dr. Seibert desires to show the beauty of the English language in written form. The literary concepts of metaphors, allusions, symbols, etc., increase not only the enjoyment of a written work but also the impact of the message.
Mrs. Tammie Genco was blessed to grow up in a Christian home. The Lord gave her the grace to believe on Him as her Savior when she was in kindergarten. Since then the Lord has faithfully guided her steps. She attended BJU and obtained an undergraduate and a master's degree in education. She began working at BJU Press Distance Learning as an assistant and later as an algebra teacher. During that time she met her husband, Tom. They were married in May 2002. Mrs. Genco likes monster trucks, theater, mountains, roller coasters, and teenagers. Her desire for her Algebra and Geometry students is that they will be better equipped to serve Christ after this class.
