New and Returning Teachers, New Classes for 2020

We Welcome Teachers John Hogan, Ada Pimentel, and Trevor J. Davis

We are excited to announce that two new teachers and one returning teacher will be joining the Scholars Online community for the 2020-2021 academic year.

John Hogan previously taught both Introductory Algebra and Programming at Scholars Online. Mr. Hogan adds coursework in teaching mathematics to an extensive career background in software engineering and systems support. He’s returning to teach an additional section of algebra in the evenings for students whose mornings are already committed.

Ada Pimentel will be joining Dr. Christe McMenomy to team-teach World History I. Mrs. Pimentel is the wife of one of Dr. Christe’s former students, and has worked as a classroom teacher in both private and public schools. She is currently pursuing a degree in Medieval Studies and will bring a new and different perspective to our examination of human history.

Mr. Trevor J. Davis has completed his MA in European history and is currently pursuing his doctorate. He has a deep and abiding interest in the American Revolution and in understanding historical movements in their original context. He will be offering courses in US History and American Government designed to help students understand the complexity of issues and develop their own critical judgment of past and current events.

Continuing in the Word

There’s a new blog article at Continuing in the Word, where Dr. Bruce McMenomy explores what he calls “The Sherlock Holmes Law”. We encourage you to share the blog articles with your friends, and to post your questions and comments in response.
