 Debbie Qualls, B.A.  Weíve finished our homeschooling adventure, seeing our two oldest complete college and marry, as our youngest prepares to graduate from A & M next year.  The years of early morning Bible reading and historically-based read-alouds gave them a good foundation, and I appreciate getting to continue the cycle with the students in my classes! Although I earned a teaching degree from Stephen F. Austin State University, training for teaching this class comes from a love of literature and history, and periodic tutelage from Pat McFarlane over the past eleven years, as well as from listening to the students express what works for them. ~ II Cor. 4:7.
