Chance Godwin, B.F.A Communication Arts, Virginia Commonwealth University

Chance believes the lens of narrative to be the best way to observe the workings of the world around us. The patterns of history, and life itself, are repeated consistently through time and space. By mastering the art of storytelling, students learn to recognize and employ these patterns, leveraging them to become dynamic and innovative individuals. Through the study of visual media and the arts, Chance employs unconventional classroom dynamics to stimulate and provoke students to grow in creativity, producing powerful manifestations of their vision and ideas in the form of animation, comic books, film, literary works and much more. 
Home educated through age 18, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Virginia Commonwealth University’s Communication Arts Department, Chance has developed an energetic and unrestrained attitude toward education over the last 7 years of teaching. He has collaborated as an instructor with VCU’s Summer Intensive Program and the Richmond Symphony’s Youth Orchestra Project, and now is developing a new, independent education project called “Visionary” which will bring all his subject offerings together into a single, multi-faceted program capable of challenging the expectations of the most ambitious learners.

Regina Dunklebarger

Hello, my name is Mrs. Dunklebarger.

I love children’s natural curiosity and strive to inspire them to always ask questions about the world around them and to seek the answers to those questions. I believe that learning happens when you see, hear, smell, touch, and do and always try to present information and foster learning through a variety activities.

I am an honors graduate from Mary Baldwin College where I earned a degree in Biology and Education. I love skiing, hiking, swimming, and travel. I have 2 boys, 3 hermit crabs, 1 dog, 1 cat, and a Madagascar Hissing cockroach that all call me mom…well maybe not the cockroach so much but I do feed and water it.

I love homeschooling my boys and am excited to get to know and teach your children as well.
