CHC Teachers and Club Contacts ( 2023 - 2024):

 

Amber Collier soulcreativearts@gmail.com -Dance and Ballet -I am a Christian, a wife, and a homeschooling mother of 3 amazing children. I graduated from Texas A&M in 2003 and have always had an entrepreneurial spirit! My family has lived in College Station for 10 years, and I have taught ballet, locally, for the past 9. We are a Texas loving nature family! In my free time you will find me with family enjoying our ranch, hiking, reading, and spending time with my family! 

 

Abigail Castro risekidsrunclub@gmail.com - Run Club - I love the Lord and I'm a homeschool mama of 2!  I graduated from UTSA in 2005 with a degree in Special Education.  I have been running since the Fifth grade and participated in track and field and cross country.  I continue to run because I find running to be a rewarding outlet physically, mentally, and emotionally, (although challenging).  I love to work with kids and want to help give them tools to grow which is why I'm excited about run club!  I enjoy playing games with family and friends, being outdoors when it's cooler, art, crafts, and exploring new places!

Gabrielle Davis gabrielled99@protonmail.com - Pre School Classes - My name is Gabrielle Davis. I am a local homeschooling mom of 9 (2 graduated so far, 1 in Heaven, 6 still at home) and a former kindergarten teacher in Bryan ISD. I have an Early Childhood/Elementary teaching degree from TAMU. I have homeschooled all of my children from the beginning and taught in many homeschool co-ops over the years. I have a heart for teaching and especially love little people.
 

Sharon Dickey sharondickey@bellsouth.net - ASL - American Sign Language:  I have taught or been involved with ASL for more than 20years. I have taught from kindergarten to adults. I have also been involved with deaf missions. Right now, I am working with my daughter for a Sign Language competition in music. 

 

Kenneth Fleming kenneth@sciencebetweenthepages.comScience - Dr. Kenneth Fleming has been teaching science in the Bryan/College Station community since 2009. His passion for understanding how people learn science inspired him to pursue graduate education at Texas A&M University.  His research narrowed to investigating how difference-makers in the informal science education community shape exhibits and experiences that support families learning science together outside the classroom.  As an adjunct faculty member at Texas A&M University, he continues to prepare current and future educators to work with young children and to teach science through hands-on activities.
 

Nicole Fleming nicole@sciencebetweenthepages.com - Science - Nicole's new science learning and teaching journey started in 2012 and as her oldest daughter grew and they continued to have more children, Nicole offered more and more science classes. One of Nicole's favorite things about teaching at the Community Homeschool Center is the freedom to teach topics that she is interested in and to share her excitement about God and His creation with so many families in the Brazos Valley.  This flexibility has given her the freedom to give credit for all these wonders to our magnificent God and Creator. 

Cheryl Flores heartartstudios@outlook.com - Art  - I have my BFA in Studio Art from SHSU. I knew from the beginning that I wanted to share my passion for the arts with children so after graduation I began working on my MEd in Curriculum & Instruction with Teaching Certification. Once certified I began teaching in public schools. While I LOVED being in the classroom inspiring all my budding artists, I soon realized that was not the right fit for me and my family. After some reflection, I decided to go out on my own, thus the fruition of Heart Art Studios was created and our homeschool journey begins!! My passion and love of creativity has stayed with me through everything I’ve taken on and that is what I hope to instill in your children - a creativity that runs so deep they can always have the confidence they need to tackle anything that comes their way. As an artist and educator, I realize the importance of allowing children to freely express themselves through their creative experiences in art. While learning the fundamentals of art, and the proper use of materials and techniques, students are guaranteed to grow as artists while having an enormous amount of fun.

Suzanne Gose suzanne.gose@gmail.com - Spanish and Public Speaking - Suzanne is a public school teacher turned homeschooler, and earned her degree in 1999 from Baylor University.  That bachelors in Education, Public Speaking, Spanish, and English as a Second Language, plus a minor in religion gave her the springboard to teach many subjects, as well as encourage other mothers. From 2002, she has been teaching Spanish and public speaking in the Brazos Valley in various locations and co-ops, but for the past 14 years has been teaching at the Community Homeschool Center, which she and several other homeschooling mothers founded in 2009. She is the happily married mother to their five children, all homeschooled from the beginning with just two left to graduate. The lessons from her first classes in 2002 developed into the family business, FlipFlopSpanish.com and SpanishGeniuses.com. She travels the nation, giving workshops and seminars on various topics, as well as speaking on leadership panels and encouraging homeschoolers in every state.

I am excited about the opportunity to teach your students at the CHC on Wednesdays at our new location Legends Event Center.

Karen VonGonten: Karen.vongonten@gmail.com - Music Appreciation - I am a homeschool mom to 6 who loves music! As a child, I sang and tinkered at the piano. As a teen, I took on the clarinet and guitar. I have taught lessons of one kind or another for countless years (even teaching people to play instruments that I don’t play!) and have written and recorded hundreds of educational songs for children.

SCIENCES

 

9:00 am High School Physics : Discovering Design with Physics is a  laboratory-based high school physics course and is the first physics course a college-bound student should take. It gives the student an introduction to the basics, such as Newton’s Laws of Motion, Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation, work, energy, and power, waves, sound, and light,  electrical potential, electric fields, circuits, resistance, and current, magnetism, and magnetic fields.

We will meet each Wednesday to complete the labs with experiments including the measuring of acceleration due to gravity, making a one-dimensional Newton’s Cradle, making simple circuits, and making an electromagnet. I will have a weekly checklist for each student, so they will know the readings and homework to complete throughout the week. I will also use Google Classroom to add videos along with other extra helps for each chapter and an open tutor time from 11 am-12 pm for any questions. This is a graded course, I hand out a grade sheet so that students can track their grades. I work with students to meet their learning styles and provide help as they travel through High School Physics. We will be using Discovering Design with Physic by Dr. Jay Wile which is hot off the press this summer. It can be found at bereanbuilders.com. The book is also available in audio form for our auditory learners. The student will also need a 1” 3-Ring Binder and a composition notebook or sketchbook for their lab work.

10:00  am High School Chemistry
Discovering Design with Chemistry is a high school chemistry course designed for students who have completed Algebra I. This college-preparatory course covers fundamental aspects of chemistry such as the classification of matter, atomic structure, spectroscopy, stoichiometry, solutions, ideal gases, acid/base chemistry, reduction/oxidation reactions, thermodynamics, kinetics, and chemical equilibrium. Weaving together concepts and their mathematical applications, the course teaches students how to think as a chemist so they can analyze the major changes that occur in matter.

We will meet each Wednesday to complete the labs. I will have a weekly checklist for each student, so they will know the readings and homework to complete throughout the week. I will also use Google Classroom to add videos along with other extra helps for each chapter and an open tutor time from 11 am-12 pm for any questions.

12:00  pm High School Biology
I am excited to be teaching Biology with Dr. Wile’s new (out last summer) book Discovering Design with Biology. This course is a laboratory-based high school biology course. It is a college prep class(Honours). It can also be adapted to a regular level Biology class. It gives the student an introduction to how living organisms are designed, how they interact with one another, and how they interact with their physical environment.  Students are taught how biologists classify life, the chemical processes that make life possible, the structures of RNA and DNA, and the designs of the different cells found in living organisms.  Students also learn the means by which photosynthesis, cellular respiration, and cellular reproduction occur. They then learn about the current state of biotechnology.  With the molecular and cellular basis of life covered, the students are then given a survey of the different kinds of organisms found in nature: archaea, bacteria, protists, fungi, invertebrates, vertebrates, and plants. The students then learn the biogeochemical cycles that keep environments hospitable to life, which leads to a discussion of ecosystems. Throughout the course, students see that life is the result of design and that organisms have been given the ability to adapt to their surroundings. In addition, they learn about various problems associated with modern evolutionary synthesis.

We will meet each Wednesday to complete the labs, microscope work, and dissections. We will also review material and answer questions. I will have a weekly checklist for each student, so they will know the readings and homework to complete throughout the week. This is a graded course. I work with students to meet their learning styles and provide help as they travel through Biology. The student will also need a 1” 3-Ring Binder, a set of 32 colored pencils, and a composition book. The class is designed as an honors biology class and provides one high school science credit.

Cost: One-time materials fee - $50 (which includes labs, printed notebook, and dissections)
$55/month(Dec and May $25), Ask me about discounts.

9:00 am Worldview Grades 3-8

The culture surrounding us is wanting to influence our children's minds at younger and younger ages.  You and I needed worldview in college.  Our kids need worldview in kindergarten!! Even PBS shows and "Saturday morning cartoons" have messages about worldview that none of us expected!  How can we teach this topic and make it kid-appropriate and kid-approved?  This 55-minute worldview class is tailored to your upper elementary and middle school student!  We will spend the year looking at various topics in culture and comparing the four most prevalent worldviews in our Western society (Biblical Christianity, New Age, Atheistic Naturalism, and Islam) with each other.  Your student can expect about 10-20 minutes of homework per week, the occasional quiz (for me to be able to track their comprehension), and a few projects (for them to review and solidify what they've learned).  This course is full of discussion and fun!  Come join us for a new outlook on life, culture, and everything! teachercarrieBBA@gmail.com Carrie McClung

Fundamentals and Foundations of Art with Mrs. Flores: 

2pm-3pm Grades 3rd-6th  

Students will cover the Elements and Principals of Art while creating work that inspires creativity, expanding their knowledge of artists from past to present, along with the proper use of materials and mediums. In addition, they will learn how to catalog their artistic journey, collaborate on group projects and installations, and do community outreach. It’s also important to learn how to classify art and proper art critique skills, set up their own gallery show, and write about their process and inspiration for their work.  

The student’s artwork will be created by drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, and textiles. Students will have the opportunity to experiment with fun and engaging processes incorporating several different materials and mediums. All work will be placed into a portfolio and saved for an end-of-semester art show.  

Students are expected to participate each week for the entire semester as class foundations learned can directly affect another project previously covered and some projects take several weeks to complete.  

Class fees: $15 per class paid monthly with a semester art supply fee of $25.  

September $45, October $60, November $60, December $30, or $195 per semester.  

No class Sept 20th, Nov 22nd, Dec 20th, 27th

3:00 pm Worldview: "History of the Western Mind", grades 8-12

We will be using Sire's UNIVERSE NEXT DOOR as our main, but not exclusive, curriculum.  The course will give a broad understanding of how the Western mind went from basically Biblical understanding of reality 200 years ago to our post-Post-Modern mess of today.  We will examine what Biblical thinking is and discover what minor or major changes in worldview brought about shifts in society, religion, ethics, etc.  Do you like to think outside the box?  Come join my class in "Holy Cow-Tipping": a safe place to raise difficult questions in faith and thought.  Class time will be filled with discussion, pop culture issues, and likely my famous rabbit holes.  The student should expect homework and grades at this level.  Carrie McClung teachercarrieBBA@gmail.com
