BS, Howard University

Von Sommerville has a bachelor of science degree in chemistry. She worked as a chemist and safety engineer for a space and technology company prior to transitioning to a full-time homemaker. She home educated her five children from kindergarten through high school and, for the past twelve years, has taught and tutored high school chemistry and high school and college algebra.

With many years of experience, Von understands the different learning styles and needs of Christian homeschooled students. She enjoys watching students who did not have an interest in science come alive as they discover God’s designs for the universe through the scientific concepts introduced in high school chemistry.

Von has been married for 30 years and has five adult children. Along with her husband, she serves as the administrator of a Christian homeschool support group and satellite program. When she is not serving the homeschool families in her PSP, she keeps busy taking biblical counseling classes at a local Bible college and organizing events for the homeless through her church ministry.
