Our Class Picture 2017-2018


Our 2018-2019 Teachers:

Mrs. Denise Woltering,  Government/Economics—  Mrs. Woltering attended Christendom College and majored in History and French.  She then went to St. Louis University where she received her Master’s in Modern European History.  Mrs. Woltering taught at Holy Family Academy for ten years, five of which she was Academic Dean.  She has taught high school history, French, and directed several plays.  She was on the Board of Directors at Lyceum Catholic Community in Cincinnati, Ohio for three years and taught Ancient History.  Mrs. Woltering is very excited to teach Government and Economics to our students.

Mrs. Kelly Zieg, English—  Mrs. Zieg, the mother of nine boys, has homeschooled for ten years.  Prior to homeschooling her own children she worked as an Instructional Systems Designer developing training programs for the government.  She holds a BA degree from Marymount Manhattan College and an MS in Instructional Systems Design from John Hopkins University.  For the past seven years, she has taught various IEW courses:  Level A, A-Continuation, B, Fun and Fascinating, Bible Heroes, The Elegant Essay, and Ancient, Medieval, and History themed courses.  She has taught IEW to small groups, in co-op settings, and online.  She believes anyone can write if you meet the student where they are and guide them within IEW’s framework and style.

Mrs. Kathryn Reinboldt, Art—  Mrs. Reinboldt studied Art at Washington University at St. Louis School of Fine Arts.  She spent a summer semester in Florence Italy studying printmaking.  Her student exhibit in the Corcoran Gallery of Art won the Scholastic Golden Key Award.   Mrs. Reinboldt teaches Religious Education, is the Parent Coordinator for the Illuminations History Class in Manassas, and has been the CS Art Tutor for three years.  She has been instrumental in implementing our Middle School Art Program at CS these past several years, and is looking forward to inspiring our High School students as well.

Miss Alexandra Clark, Traditional Logic—  Miss Clark was homeschooled through High school, and then attended Ave Maria University where she obtained a Bachelors degree in Catholic Theology and a minor in Catechetics.  She spent a semester abroad in Rome studying Art, Architecture, Humanities, Theology, Poetry and Literature.  While in Rome she taught English to Roman children at an Italian Montessori School.  At Ave Maria she was a Catechist for 4th, 5th, High school and RCIA classes.  After graduation in 2014, she became Foundation Manger at MRC exposing media bias and promoting the truth.  She has volunteered in Church choirs since age ten and is currently an assistant choir director at Holy Trinity Catholic Church where they specialize in  Gregorian Chant.  Currently, she is the Office Manager for Public Advocate of the U.S.,  an organization fighting to promote traditional family values.  She is very excited to teach logic this year as she believes the most important thing to teach students is to be able to think, come to know the truth, and thereafter to know how to defend the truth.
