​Kathy Arrick

Kathy Arrick attended Bob Jones University and Clearwater Christian College to become an elementary education teacher. Right after college she married and had six children. Her focus, then, became raising her six children in the fear and admonition of the Lord and homeschooling them. After nine years of homeschooling, all her children enrolled in a classical Christian school, and she became the assistant principal as well as a part-time teacher: teaching music, Latin, rhetoric, British Literature, writing, and logic. During the past 13 years she has been a full-time teacher of both third and fourth grades at Veritas Academy in Leola, PA. She is very excited to teach and believes that everything that we see and may know is because God has created it and given humans the ability to see and know Him through it. Her love for art history stems from the wonderment of humankind's creative and expressive nature which can be seen and can be traced back to God, whose creativity and expressiveness is seen in all that He has made. To Kathy, geography is not merely learning facts about countries and lands, rather, geography teaches about God our Creator - His power, intelligence, and sovereign control - and the diverse world He created for us both to live in and to renew for us when Christ returns. Teaching students how to write using the IEW rubric is one of Kathy’s passions because in learning to write, we learn to communicate our thoughts with great precision and winsomeness, just as God communicates His thoughts to us through Scripture. Her desire is to train the future generations how to apply His truths to as many disciplines as possible so that they are better equipped to serve the Lord in all walks of life.
