Welcome Aboard, Ms. DeKerlegand

We are very happy to welcome Ms. Kendall DeKerlegand to the Regents faculty in 2018-19. Ms. DeKerlegand will team-teach the second grade with returning second grade teacher Mrs. Lisa Porter until the second semester, when she will take primary responsibility for the class. Mrs. Porter plans to move toward retirement once Ms. DeKerlegand takes leadership of the class.

Ms. DeKerlegand is a 2014 graduate of Regents Academy. She plans to graduate from SFA in December with a B.A. in Education. Until then, we plan for her to spend as much time as possible in the Regents classroom getting necessary experience and preparing for her future full-time role.

Welcome aboard, Ms. DeKerlegand!

Welcome Aboard, Mr. Ben Alexander

We are very happy to welcome Mr. Ben Alexander to our school’s faculty in 2018-19. Mr. Alexander, along with his wife Jana and five children, come to us from California, where he served as headmaster of King’s Classical Academy. Mr. Alexander will serve as Omnibus teacher and as Dean of Students. One of his primary responsibilities will be to oversee our new House System, which we are excited to kick off this fall. Three of Mr. Alexander’s children will attend Regents beginning this fall: Elijah, Abigail, and Hannah.

Welcome aboard, Mr. Alexander!

Welcome Aboard, Mrs. Melissa Rotramel

We are very happy to introduce Mrs. Melissa Rotramel as our new Logic/Rhetoric School math teacher for 2018-19. No stranger to our school, Mrs. Rotramel spent the last year as a Regents mom, but now she takes her place in the math classroom as our Prealgebra, Algebra, and Geometry teacher. Originally from the Texas Panhandle, Melissa is the wife of Blaine and the mom of Sydney and Shelby.

Welcome aboard, Mrs. Rotramel!
