We are very happy to welcome Mrs. Rebecca Shatwell to the 2017-18 Regents Academy faculty. Mrs. Shatwell comes to Regents with many years’ experience teaching mathematics and will be teaching Prealgebra and Algebra 1. Welcome, Mrs. Shatwell!
Regents Academy is very happy to welcome Mrs. Melissa Ketchen as its new first grade teacher for the 2017-18 school year.
Originally from New Zealand, Mrs. Ketchen taught for a number of years in Christian schools, but her most recent educational experience was homeschooling her four children, Abel, Natalie, Susanna, and Hayley (who will all be enrolling at Regents this fall). Mrs. Ketchen and her husband Nathan recently moved to Nacogdoches from Colorado and are looking forward to making many new friends at Regents.
Welcome, Mrs. Ketchen!
Congratulations to this year’s recipients of the Eagle Award: Sydni Mancill (5th-6th), Leah Vermillion (7th-8th), and Elise Landrum (9th-12th).
Regents Academy 7th grader Mason Baker auditioned and has been serving as double bass principal with the East Texas Youth Philharmonic Orchestra this year. The ETYO, based in Tyler, is under the direction of Dr. Gene Moon.
Congratulations, Mason! We are proud of you!
The 10th grade class, with their teacher, Mr. David Henry, recently completed their readings in the Ancient Greek period — such classics as Homer’s Iliad and Thucydides’ History of the Pelopennesian War. They celebrated their accomplishment by experiencing some Greek culture for themselves — food, costumes, weaponry, and, naturally, funeral games (Thor Anderson finished as champion).
