Jon was born and raised in Denver, CO, and migrated to California 15 years ago. He and his wife Alyssa have six children, five of whom attend ILA. As a pastor, Jon loves teaching. He has degrees in Chemistry, English, and a Master's in Divinity. He has taught Chemistry in smaller classroom settings, as well as extensive tutoring, but during his time in college and after. Chemistry is a fascinating subject, and Jon has a great desire to share that fascination with students, and help them to love Chemistry as well.
As a parent, Jon also understands the complexity of trying to homeschool, and his primary goal is to make the process as simple as possible for parents. His goal is for the classroom to be fun, but serious, and for the focus to be on learning, interaction, and concept understanding.
