Kathleen Cockrel is a math instructor at Eureka College in central Illinois and has tutored elementary through high-school math for several years. She received her Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Mathematics from Western Kentucky University where she was also involved in the college orchestra and the Baptist Campus Ministry. Mrs. Cockrel was homeschooled through 10th grade and then graduated from the Gatton Academy of Mathematics & Science dual-enrollment program.. When she isn't teaching or planning lessons, Kathleen loves enjoying God's beautiful creation by horseback riding, hiking, or kayaking. She is always happy to talk about her many pets (horses, a milk cow, dogs, & cats) or her favorite books (19th century British novels). Kathleen came to know Christ during college and has found great joy in seeing His grace to her through Scripture and community. Her local church is Christ Church, PCA, and she loves meeting believers from all nations and studying Scripture with other women. She is married to Brad, an engineer, and they have two spoiled cats you might occasionally glimpse in her classrooms.
