The John Brown University Threefold Advocate reports on History Professor and homeschooler, Preston Jones.
Professor teaches homeschool on the side By Laura Roller
“To me, the central motivating force in my life is education, and I don’t really care whether it’s with little kids or graduate students,” he said.
An “ideal week” for Jones would be four various classes, one each with fourth or fifth grade, 11th grade, undergraduate students and graduate students.
“It’s fun. I like the challenge of pitching things to different levels and age groups,” Jones said.
Professor Jones seems to love teaching, advancing the love of learning and discussion.
“Often the challenge a professor faces is you ask a question and are met with a tsunami of silence. That’s not the problem with these kids. You ask them a question, and the challenge becomes letting them all say what they want to say, while also moving on,” Jones said.
