2022-2023 TEACH BOARD MEMBERS
Did you know that the Board of Directors is the Governing Authority over TEACH? This means they help to guide all of the units that make up our organization- co-ops, field trips, athletics, special events like formal and graduations, etc.
We hold an election each year to choose our new board members who will serve a two year term. We want to make sure you know who your board members are! They are moms and dads in the organization just like everyone else and are happy to chat with you anytime. Their contact info is listed on the Contacts page.
Matthew & Julie Wine, President
Matthew and Julie have been married 19 years and call each other best friends. We have 5 children (ages 16, 13, 11, 9, 4) who are our greatest treasures. We began homeschooling when our oldest started Kindergarten. We feel like the Lord led us to homeschool, and it has been an amazing journey. We are so thankful for the opportunity to be together with our kids, learning at home. We are also very grateful for TEACH and the Johnson City co-op, which has been such a blessing over the last 11 years. The friends we have made, the opportunity for fellowship with other homeschooling families, and unique and awesome classes taught by excellent parents have all been a source of encouragement to us.
We are involved in a prayer ministry in the Tri-Cities as our full-time calling and occupation. Julie also teaches online English classes in the early morning hours. We really love connecting with Jesus and encouraging others to do the same!
