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."
Miss Goins completed a masters degree in history education. Her interest in history began in high school. "I realized that there was more to history than just what the textbook included. My favorite part of a history class was the research project, where we could choose our own topics and do as much research as we wanted." In college, she studied a variety of phases in history, but her favorite courses were in World History, especially Western Europe.
Her goal for her students is to see that history is much like a good story. It tells of God’s working in peoples’ lives, using even the most unlikely of people as His instruments. Historical events are not just things of the past to be pushed aside; they are actual incidents from which students of today can learn. Isaiah 46:9 gives us the main reason for studying history: "Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me."
Mr. Dick Seeley understands science, and he understands high school students. While earning his BS in Science and his MS in educational Administration and Supervision from Bob Jones University, he has invested 69 semester hours in science-related fields. Mr. Seeley has 35 years of teaching experience, including physics, chemistry, biology, physical science, and math at the secondary level. In addition to teaching with BJU Distance Learning for 11 years, he has also worked as a textbook author for BJU Press.
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.
Miss Martini thoroughly enjoys reading and is excited about the opportunity to teach American literature and to share her love for the subject. "Ever since the fourth grade, I’ve never been more than a stone’s throw away from a book. During high school, my English teacher channeled my love for reading into a more disciplined approach which allowed me to glean much more from my reading. My goal for my students is that, even if they do not ‘love’ reading, they be able to develop the skills necessary to understand and explain the literature for themselves. These skills will allow them to develop a discerning eye toward whatever material they read. More importantly, my desire is that they apply these literature skills to their own personal Bible study. The Word of God can come alive to them in ways that they might not have experienced before taking this class. Having just completed the study of the elements of literature, it is now time that they begin to understand what the literature is saying and the purpose the authors had for their writings."
Dr. Garry Conn grew up in a Christian home and made his own profession of faith at a Christian camp in southern Ohio at the age of nine. Dr. Conn’s own interest in math was influenced by his high school geometry teacher who enjoyed teaching and made the class enjoyable for the students as well, even those that did not like math. Dr. Conn graduated with a BA in Bible Education with a minor in math from Bob Jones University, an MAT in math from The Citadel, and an Ed.D. in curriculum and instruction from Bob Jones University.
