Mrs. Ronda Kilian
Ronda began her home school journey in 2010 with her children Jacob in 8th grade, Joshua in 5th grade, and Naomi in 2nd grade in the Phoenix, Arizona area while her husband Brian was deployed overseas. What began as an effort to have control over their schedule quickly became a passion and love of teaching and an opportunity to develop deeper relationships with each of her children. She has graduated one son who will graduate from college this year as an Aerospace Engineer who will go on to be commissioned into the Navy. Her next son will be graduating high school and going to college in the fall to pursue a Mechanical Engineering degree on an AFROTC scholarship. Her daughter will be a high school junior in the fall. She is excited for the opportunity to stay active in the home school community even as her children graduate and go on to adulthood.
Ronda has a background in computer science and has been a software engineer for over 25 years working for Novell, Iomega, and Microsoft at times and has spent the last 15 of those years, being a freelance consultant customizing financial and business applications. She teaches from a classical Christian model and enjoys seeing the growth in not only her children, but other students as she has taught various subjects at the high school level in a classical co-op environment for several years. She firmly believes that adding fun to the learning process helps students to remember what they studied long after the class ends. She, her husband, and children relocated to Texas two years ago and are looking forward to making this area their forever home.
Ronda teaches through a lens of a Biblical worldview and believes that everything points to God and His authority and ultimate design. She also believes that she is not merely teaching subjects, but rather preparing her children and students with life skills that will carry them into adulthood with a love for life-long learning. She is also a musician who plays regularly with her church and enjoys quilting, sewing, and a bit of farm life in the local area.
