Rhonda Helmreich currently teaches high school literature and writing at TNPC, a Home School Cooperative which she co-founded in 1999. Her teaching career began in public schools, where she received awards for innovative literature-based instructional methods. When the time came to homeschool her own five children, she aimed to raise passionate followers of Christ with critical thinking skills and a heart for reaching the world. Sonlight, with its focus on great literature, became her curriculum of choice. Her home-school nest now empty, Rhonda enjoys sharing her teaching insights with others.
