Timothy graduated from Boise State University with a degree in Economics, a minor in Secondary Science, and a teaching certificate. Immediately, Timothy began his teaching career immersed in Christian education as, along with his brother, he helped start The Montgomery Institute - serving homeschooling families. A short time after that, he started the George Washington Academy of Arts and Sciences. This academy provided classes for grades 7+ and eventually grew into Covenant Academy under the direction of David Barrett.
Following his time with GWA, Timothy taught at a number of different private schools. During that time, he also served as an administrator, assistant principal, athletic director, and coach. His primary teaching focus was grades 7+ and he had opportunity to teach every subject across the curriculum.
Life circumstances led him to take a position in private business, where he eventually became the president of a non-profit agency with annual revenues reaching almost $500,000 / year. During that time, he continued his teaching activity, conducting some 250 educational presentations per year on behalf of the non-profit agency, and providing part-time teaching for Covenant Academy.
With changes in that non-profit's industry, the board of directors chose to liquidate the agency. Timothy took that opportunity to begin his adventure of being an independent contractor in the field of teaching. In the process of meeting the challenge of being an independent contractor, Timothy has developed the online portion of Covenant Academy, and continues to look for opportunities to expand its reach.
Timothy is honored to be able to say that every year of his teaching has been immersed in the truths of Christianity. Early in his career he was blessed with the opportunity to study the Principle Approach method and he has strived to incorporate those principles in his teaching. In recent years, it has been with a renewed vision and desire that Timothy has approached his teaching desiring all the more to incorporate Biblical principles into all of his teaching.
