After graduating from Florida State with a degree in Humanities, Jennifer Drury taught a variety of courses at Christ Classical Academy, beginning in 2004. Crafting Omnibus courses remains one of her favorite parts of teaching, and she loves the freedom to do so outside of traditional school. She began tutoring fellow students in math and science in the 10th grade. While tutoring homeschoolers and teaching courses for a SAT prep company during college, she realized that she loved the humanities even more than her math and science courses and changed her major from chemistry, but she never lost her love of seeing students make math connections.
Mrs. Drury has homeschooled her children and taught courses from her home for the past six years. She enjoys helping students to find truth, goodness, and beauty, along with a lot of fun, in the great books within a historical context. Along with her husband and two daughters, she loves being a member of Center Point Church, where she is the administrator.
