About the Course
Western civilizatiion has enjoyed unprecedented freedom. Why? Students will trace the path of freedom through the histories of ancient Israel, Greece, Rome, early Europe (especially Great Britain), the development of the English language, the Reformation, Renaissance and the founding of America. We will, then, examine current events as they relate to the dismantling of the foundations of freedom. Students will gain knowledge of European history and the roots of America's founding.

I have been involved in the homeschool community for over 30 years. I homeschooled seven children, and now help with the education of several of my eighteen grandchildren. I enjoy teaching history and geography, especially to Jr. high and high school students. I taught World History at Cornerstone several years ago when my children were involved, and I have taught World Geography, World History and Speech at Heritage Family Educators Coop.
I earned a BS in Health Services Administration at Eastern Kentucky University. After college, I worked at Norton Hospital as Assistant Director of the Medical Record Department. In addition to supervising staff, I developed educational programs for the department and taught classes in medical terminology and anatomy to hospital employees.
In my free time I read history books for fun! I also enjoy writing Bible studies and have written four Bible studies for women.
