Chanelle
Bio

Chanelle has more than 16 years experience in public and private education. During that time, Chanelle has taught elementary grades, as well as middle and high school Language Arts. Chanelle’s introduction to Classical Education has changed the way she thinks about traditional educational models. The Classical approach is a proven model with outstanding educational results, and Chanelle is excited to teach in a school that emphasizes its value and importance. Chanelle is wife to Matt, who was a collegiate and professional athlete, as well as a youth pastor. Together, they have three children: Ryleigh, Elise, and Caroline. Sports play a large part in the life of the Pritchetts and, when they are not engaged in their studies, they can often be found on an athletic field. Chanelle is thankful for the opportunity to work with your children. Her desire is to help all of her students develop a love of literature and a passion for writing.
