BS, Howard University

Von Sommerville received her Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry with a minor in Mathematics from Howard University. She worked as a chemist and system 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 has taught and tutored high school chemistry, and high school and college algebra for the past fifteen years. Von recently retired after eighteen years of service as the administrator of a Christian homeschool support group and PSP that serves the needs of local homeschooling families. She and her husband of 34 years enjoy serving the underprivileged and less fortunate through local ministries to the homeless and through an orphanage in Malawi, Africa.

With many years of experience, Von understands the different learning styles and needs of Christian home-schooled 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.
