“Nothing is as exciting nor as challenging as teaching.” Diane Davis
Known as a bookworm since early childhood, Diane Davis has enjoyed teaching for over 40 years. She began teaching music during her undergraduate work at Westminster College where she received a degree in Music Education at both elementary and secondary levels. Following graduation, she was a para-professional in public school for 2 years. While her children were young, Diane taught as a substitute in both Christian and public schools. No Christian school in the area would accept her oldest son due to his learning disabilities, so she and her husband Randall began a Christian school in 1990, Liberty Christian Academy (LCA). LCA initially had 3 teachers and 7 grades, so Diane’s experience with multi-level teaching began.
While teaching and administering various Christian schools, Diane earned a Master’s degree in Educational Administration and a Doctorate in Higher Education Leadership, both from Idaho State University. Her dissertation covered the life of a one-room school teacher from Jerome, Idaho as she taught grades 1-8. Diane then taught grades 3-9 in a one-room school where she honed her practices and ideas about multi-level teaching.
There is never a dull moment in a one-room classroom. The high school student would look up from his work to learn how to read a clock, something that he had never learned. He thanked me after class because he had always wanted to know how, but never wanted to ask anyone. The younger classes were determined to catch up to the older students, so they also would be listening to the more advanced topics. And yet, everyone did their assignments.
“For He established a testimony in Jacob and appointed a law in Israel, which He commanded our fathers that they should teach them to their children, that the generation to come might know, even the children yet to be born, that they may arise and tell them to their children, that they should put their confidence in God and not forget the works of God, but keep His commandments.” Psalm 78:5-7
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” ~ John 14:6
The word for truth in this verse is Aletheia, and the idea that we can know the way, the truth, and the life is a key part of who we are as a community at Aletheia. We are a Christian community of learning, or a college, who pursue truth together.
The older meaning of aletheia is to not forget. As we study God’s purpose and hand in history, we learn to remember the works that God has done in history. We learn to see His providence and handiwork in all around us: history, science, mathematics, teaching and learning, business, the church, and so on.
