Meet the Teacher

What is your name?

My name is Christine Lovett.  I attended Oral Roberts University and completed my bachelor's degree at Oklahoma Wesleyan University. I have received FACE certification as a master teacher of the Principle Approach method.  

What do you teach? 

I am the headmaster of True Foundation and I currently teach American Providential History for middle school. 

How many years have you taught at True Foundation?

I have taught at True Foundation for 10 years.

What do you appreciate most about the Principle Approach?

I love the Principle Approach because it educates individuals in Biblical reasoning that reaches the heart then transforms the mind.  As the Bible speaks the knowledge of God to each subject it also speaks principles directly to the student’s present and future life. Principle Approach places no limits to the level that a learner reaches but instead grants the freedom to truly learn and love to do it!  

What do you see in your students that is most encouraging?

It is a joy to see the individual progress that each student is making.  We have had students come in at 4th-MS grades that were unable to construct a sentence.  Today, these children are writing essays in cursive with beautiful content!  Unfortunately, not all tests can measure the growth that students are making every day but with the tutorial method of Principle Approach, we can easily identify how much and where they are progressing!

Why do you love teaching at True Foundation?

True Foundation is a place that promotes freedom in Christ to excel according to His standards according to His Word in character and intellect. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is a liberty!  This opens the door to endless possibilities.

How do you teach Biblical worldview in your classroom?

The Providential Hand and Sovereignty of God is the center of each lesson that is studied in His story.  The student is challenged to see the cause and effect of individuals, nations, and events.  Looking through the lens of the Bible as we learn is paramount. 

What do you think most students appreciate about your class?

They are respected as uniquely created individuals with a voice to share and be heard.  They feel safe to learn without being compared to others or put in a box of one way of growing and learning.  They know I want to be there!

What is unique about you, your talents, or interests that you bring to the class room?

I am a living testimony as an adult of success from learning by the Principle Approach.  It transformed my way of thinking and turned me into a lover of learning! As I myself now have excitement to learn, I am able to share this in the classroom and encourage the ready as well as the reluctant learner.  I see value and potential in each and every child and look for ways to pull this out.  I seek to be the “living textbook,” not a regurgitation of what a book tells me to teach. 

What have you seen in your students over the years that has touched your heart the most?

I have witnessed each student in certain moments convicted by the Spirit of God in the middle of teaching where their hearts were softened to receive His truth. There have been tears, repentance, apologies to one another, honesty, lightbulb moments, and inspiration in the middle of teaching a subject such as history! The growth in the whole person of each student is something that cannot be measured only in an academic test.  Their character has grown tremendously which is what really matters in the long run.  I think these also will be moments that they remember more than “aceing” a test.
