Theresa Robertson has always had a passion for teaching all ages and ranges of subjects. Her desire is to see students reach their full God-given potential, especially those who struggle with the usual models of teaching. She wants to see her students become “active learners” who know how to tap their strengths and overcome their weaknesses.
Theresa is herself homeschooled, and as such, is well-suited to the environment that is New Hope. She created and ran her own summer camp; taught regularly in VBS, and created/taught her own junior speech class. She is a graduate of Cedarville University in Ohio with a dual degree in early childhood education and special education.
Theresa’s experience includes her years in Connecticut as a high school special education teacher. Subjects included collaborative English classes, reading comprehension, study skills and strategies, tutoring in writing and lower level math classes. She developed a lot of her own curriculum and materials to challenge students of different learning abilities.
Theresa and her husband live on the north shore of Boston and are expecting their first child in winter 2020. She looks forward to joining the New Hope community, where she’ll be teaching a variety of courses and workshops in math, science, writing and learning strategies.
