Douglas Favelo, PhD
MA in Classics, PhD in History, UCLA
Dr. Favelo has been heavily involved in the classical education scene for many years, and also in the homeschool community. He has taught hundreds of homeschooled students Latin, Greek, history, and literature, and has spoken at conferences on homeschooling.
He lives with his wife and four children in Loudoun County, Virginia. His passion is to facilitate students’ intellectual and spiritual development, primarily through the medium of a rigorous, Biblically-centered classical education, to the greater glory of God.
Dr. Favelo has worked with HSLDA Online Academy since 2010 and has developed four Academy courses: AP® World History, AP® European History, Latin 1, and Latin 2.
MDiv, Mid-America Reformed Seminary
In 2005, Rev. Andrew Eenigenburg earned his undergraduate degree summa cum laude from Valparaiso University in classical languages and literature. In 2008, he graduated with a Masters of Divinity degree from Mid-America Reformed Seminary in Dyer, Indiana. Since 2009, he has served as the Minister of the West Sayville Reformed Bible Church in Long Island, where he lives with his wife and four children.
Over the past four years, in addition to his ministerial labors, he has taken up classroom instruction in person and online. He teaches Latin 1 and Latin 2 for HSLDA Online Academy and hopes that all of his students will adopt a love of language through Latin.
This is Andrew’s second year teaching for the Academy.
BA, Patrick Henry College
Allison Scheidegger earned a literature major with a classics minor from Patrick Henry College. She has taught Latin in a co-op classroom setting and tutored it at the high school level. Of all her experiences tutoring and teaching Latin classes, Allison’s favorite part has been showing students the wonders of Latin. Whether through the concise beauty of an ablative absolute or the fun of using complementary infinitives, she hopes to infect her students with awe at God’s amazing gift of language. She wants to give students the tools to understand and to creatively employ language.
Allison loves reading, cooking, sewing, and fashion design. She has always loved taking things apart to find out how they work, and then putting them back together to be used anew. Language is the most exciting example of such functional beauty, so it makes sense that one of her favorite pastimes is learning and teaching languages. And Latin is her favorite language, one that she has been learning since her mom introduced her to it in elementary school.
BA, University of California, Los Angeles
Jackie Horton earned her BA in English at UCLA but has most recently earned a Post Graduate Certificate with Distinction in Latin from the University of Wales, UK. She is currently working towards an MA in classical studies.
Jackie is excited at the prospect of sharing her love of the Latin language with students across the country. Ever since she introduced Latin to her own four children 15 years ago, she has never ceased to be amazed at the incredible tool it is to impart English grammar, exercise critical thinking skills, and cultivate an advanced English vocabulary. For her children, it also served as an excellent springboard to the study of modern Romance languages like Spanish and French. Though her children have grown, Jackie has continued to teach Latin at the elementary, middle school, and high school levels for the last 8 years at Trinity Pacific Christian School in Southern California.
When not translating Caesar or Cicero, she loves to read historical fiction, especially any books that bring to life the ancient places of the Bible. She also enjoys running, biking, skiing (water and snow), and generally just being outdoors basking in the sun with her husband and best friend of 30 years. Jackie currently resides in California.
This is her second year teaching for the Academy.
Duration: Yearlong course offered in fall/spring (32 weeks).
