Meet the Teachers!
Tara Tucker: I have been married for 20 years to Zac. We have two sons ages 7 and 10. This is our 4th year homeschooling. We have recently moved to Carson City from Las Vegas. I am a nurse with a passion for School Nursing.
Amy Shuck: I have been married to my awesome husband Rob for almost 17 years! I have a B.S. in Education with Specializations in Reading Instruction and Spanish. My public school classroom teaching experience includes Bilingual, Gifted, Special, and mainstream Education for grades K-8, in California and Texas. During college, I taught preschool at private Christian schools in both California and Texas. I have held my current teaching position for the last 16 years and it is by far the most challenging, exhausting, rewarding experience ever: Homeschool Mom. I homeschool 9 children, two with Down Syndrome (one adopted from Estonia). Due to my experiences in both my professional and family life, I am completely fascinated with brain development. I love teaching and I love the learning process. It is an amazing gift from God that He allows us to watch the "lights go on" as our children learn something new!
Debbie Corona: My background is art education. I hold a master's degree in art from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. I just finished 8 years with Monte Vista Christian School in Watsonville, California. MV is a private college preparatory high school where I was head of the art department as well as I wrote all the curriculum for Art I, II, III, all 3 disciplines for the AP program and Ceramics I, II, and III all of which was UC approved and still being used today. Art matters and is an important part of education and it's of value to me personally and professionally. The things that art teaches goes beyond the classroom and it is my privilege to be able to teach it. One of the beauties of teaching in a Christian environment was being able to pray with my students and openly talk about Jesus. We are clay in the Father's hands!
