hellos and goodbyes

Welcome, Mrs. Rebecca Beauregard

Regents Academy has been blessed with excellent math instruction for many years now. Mrs. Melissa Rotramel has served Regents families for two years with excellence, teaching Algebra, Geometry, and Biology during her time on the faculty. We will miss her devotion to her students and her creativity in the classroom as she moves on to new ventures.

But, as always, God provides the right teachers at the right time.

Regents Academy is glad to welcome Mrs. Rebecca Beauregard to its faculty for the 2020-21 school year. Mrs. Beauregard will teach Prealgebra, Algebra 1, and Geometry to Logic and Rhetoric School students. While Mrs. Beauregard spent the last several years at home with her children, for a number of years she taught middle and high school math in Arizona. Now, working alongside her husband Matthew, who teaches Calculus at Regents, Mrs. Beauregard will bring her skill and talent to the Regents classroom. Matthew and Rebecca are the parents of four children, two of whom are students at Regents Academy.

Welcome, Mrs. Beauregard!

Mary and her husband Bobby are the parents of three children: Emma, Lucy, and Reed.

Welcome aboard, Mrs. Austin!

Congratulations, Mr. Roy Bradley

Our school has been blessed to have Mr. Roy Bradley in our Logic/Rhetoric School classroom for 8 years now teaching such diverse courses as Omnibus, Logic, Algebra, Geometry, Apologetics, and Rhetoric (he’s quite the Renaissance man!).

We are very happy to announce that beginning in 2018-19 Mr. Bradley will have a new title and responsibility — Logic/Rhetoric School Principal. As principal, Mr. Bradley will oversee the academic program and culture of the School of Logic and Rhetoric, and serve teachers and parents by insuring that the school’s mission and vision is fulfilled in grades 7-12.

We are excited that Mr. Bradley will be able to put his gifts and leadership to work in this important and much-needed role.

Congratulations, Mr. Bradley, and we are thankful for you!

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!
