Kim Kirby (teaching Algebra I and Honors Geometry) earned a B.S. degree in Computer Science with minors in both Mathematics and Statistics from Colorado State University in 1986. Upon graduation, she moved to Houston to work for NASA in the Missions Operations Directorate/Training Division as an Aerospace Technologist. She trained astronauts and flight controllers on the Shuttle’s communications systems, the Space Station’s command and data handling systems, and worked in the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory as a flight hardware coordinator. In 2001, she resigned from NASA in order to help her husband as senior pastor and homeschool their three children. The Kirbys have a passion for mission work and have enjoyed serving on many short-term projects in Burma, Sri Lanka, Mexico and Nicaragua. In 2010, she accepted a position with a homeschool "school" as the Mathematics Department head and lead instructor. For the past nine years, her teaching has included middle and high school math classes (pre-algebra, algebra 1, geometry, algebra 2, pre-calculus and calculus). Mrs. Kirby also instructs both Beginning and Intermediate Algebra at the local junior college. |

Melissa Wyatt (teaching Algebra I, Algebra II, and Statistics) graduated in 2003 from Hardin-Simmons University with a Bachelor of Behavioral Science in Mathematics and a minor in English. She certified first in Texas to teach 8-12 grade math, later updating her certificate to teach 4-8 grade math as well. After teaching middle school and high school math in Texas for 11 years, she moved to Massachusetts where she homeschooled her children for two years, joining a homeschool co-op, transitioning later to teach math/science at a private school in Wayland, MA. She is now back in Texas and is excited about focusing her efforts with HSML. |
