BA, Patrick Henry College
Joanna Main is a graduate of Patrick Henry College with a B. A. in Government-Public Policy (class of 2005). This is her third year teaching AP United States History with PHC Prep. She is thankful that teaching has given her a good excuse to spend extra time studying one of her favorite subjects. She enjoys being able to lead students through the process of using a Christian worldview to analyze our country’s history. As a homeschooled graduate, she understands the benefits and challenges of learning in a non-traditional setting. It is her desire to help students overcome these challenges and encourage them to be well-reasoned and articulate in a more traditional classroom setting.
While completing her degree at PHC, Joanna interned for the National Center for Home Education and for Generation Joshua. After graduation, she continued to work for NCHE as a legislative assistant. These experiences, along with her coursework at PHC, afforded her many opportunities to improve her writing and editing skills. She is looking forward to providing assistance and feedback to students as they work to improve their own writing skills.
Joanna currently lives in Thurmont, Maryland where she watches football and baseball games with her husband, homeschools a 1st grader, and keeps a 2-year-old out of mischief. She also enjoys running, eating ice cream, and finding a good deal.
