Heidi Jones, High School Classroom TeacherClassroom Teacher

BA, Thomas Edison State University

Devon Kelly earned her bachelor’s degree in English, and for the past five years, she has been teaching literature and writing to students ages 8-18. While she has always loved books, she remembers first truly appreciating language and syntax when she read “A White Heron” by Sarah Orne Jewett and “The Weight of Glory” by C.S. Lewis.

After discussing figurative language in the Bible with some friends, Devon realized her passion for teaching others to read and think critically. She enjoys asking her students questions about the texts they study and the topics they consider in their own writings. She hopes her students will appreciate the beauty and power of words as well as communicate their own thoughts clearly.

In addition to teaching English, Devon teaches piano from her personal studio. In her spare time, she enjoys listening to music (especially music by J.S. Bach), writing poetry, baking, hiking, and attempting to garden. She is excited to help the Academy’s students grow as thinkers, readers, and writers in view of Christ the Word.
