Mythology (offered in SY 2022-2023)
Explore the world of mythology with Edith Hamilton, enjoy the stories of a distant culture, and see how God’s design for mankind is seen even in the most unlikely places! Since references to ancient myths are found throughout literature, this class will benefit students who strive to better understand both literature and ancient history. In this 15-week class students will explore Greek, Roman, and Norse mythology. We will delve into ancient ideologies, culture, and deities while maintaining a Godly perspective. Since this course is discussion-driven, a working microphone is required. This class is ideal for grades 9-12.

Jess Woods graduated from Indiana University with a degree in English Education. Upon graduating she taught in a public high school for three years before deciding to stay home with her children. Since 2013, she has been teaching middle school and high school English courses online. Jess is a life-long reader and writer. She comes alive in the company of words and music, and she has a passion for literature that reaches through every part of her being. She believes wholeheartedly that each person has a relevant voice and perspective, and she eagerly teaches her students to embrace their individual voices by exploring their own thoughts and learning to confidently articulate them. It is her desire to encourage growth in all students (regardless of their love for English courses…or lack thereof). She considers it a tremendous success if she can awaken a love of literature and/or composition in her students. Jess currently resides in Alabama with her pastor-husband, Josh. The couple has three children, two dogs, and two cats. While reading and writing are clearly on the top of her hobby list, Jess also enjoys all things musical, cooking competition shows, hiking, running, and traveling.
