Mrs. Sarah Lawson, BS

Mrs. Sarah Lawson, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Lawson previously taught kindergarten for four years. "One of my goals in teaching is to help your child feel successful at his present level and to encourage him to improve. Throughout the lessons, we talk about simple yet extremely important concepts, such as ‘God made me special,’ and ‘God gave me the Bible.’ I enjoy talking about these things with the children through the lessons. I wanted to be a teacher from the time I was a little girl, and I’m thankful to the Lord for letting me teach your child through this Distance Learning program."


Mrs. Sherri Vick, BS

Mrs. Sherri Vick, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningSherri Vick previously taught various elementary and junior high grades. "I like to look at the picture as a whole—to relate one subject to another so that the child can see how God’s plan fits together. I want the child to want to learn, so the lessons have to be fun. Hands-on is the best way, so I don’t want the student to just watch, but participate too! One of my goals is that, after watching the lessons, your child will continue in the things he has learned and develop lifelong learning skills that he can use both now and in the future."


Mrs. Debra Overly, BS, MS

Mrs. Debra Overly, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Overly, a mother of three, has experience teaching several elementary grades. "I want to encourage each child to look forward to learning each day and also to provide sufficient practice and review activities to help alleviate mom’s workload. Most importantly, I want to present Christ in each subject that I teach. Each child should hear the gospel and then see in a very practical way how it can change a sinner."


Mrs. Jennifer Cox, BS

Mrs. Jennifer Cox, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Cox, who previously taught third grade and worked for the BJU Press, continues teaching elementary grades for BJU Press Distance Learning. "Being the mother of three children is quite an education in itself. Dealing with my own children gives me insight into the minds and hearts of young children. I want each child who finishes [a] BJU Press Distance Learning grade to come away with a very sound, excellent education. One way I try to do this is by making each lesson clear and interesting so that the student can grasp the objectives and build on previous knowledge. I want to inspire children to love learning and to understand and believe that only the Christian who trusts God and obeys His Word will live a life filled with blessing and reward."


Mrs. Evanna Walker, BS

Mrs. Evanna Walker, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Walker has eight years’ experience teaching first grade at Bob Jones Elementary School. “My first love is to teach a child to read-primarily so that he can read God’s Word for himself and share it with others. He should be able to appreciate what he reads, draw conclusions, and make value judgments to become a thinker.”


Mrs. Ruth Nason, BS

Mrs. Ruth Nason, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Nason has taught on the elementary level as well as on the high school level. She believes teaching children is one of the most rewarding jobs. "The reward comes when you get feedback from students communicating to you that they understand. The best part is to see the growth in their lives, not only intellectually but, more important, spiritually. It is a wonderful privilege to be able to teach for BJU Press Distance Learning."

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fourth year using Distance Learning We have used BJU Distance Learning since kindergarten. My daughter loves the videos since she's a visual learner. Mrs. Vick is her favorite teacher! My only complaint is that the DVD's are becoming a real problem being scratched up beforehand and we can't watch a series of classes. It is happening more frequently over the years. Given the low cost of a DVD and the price paid for DL, in my opinion, it should be all new DVDs. As much as I love DL, this may be a consideration against using it in the future. Updating some of the older videos would be a huge plus too! January 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by DVD with books for Grade 3 I purchase this set for my granddaughter to use in our first attempt at homeschooling. My Granddaughter is a special needs child that was getting passed on by the school system and not being taught anything. She is much older that the normal age for a child in 3rd grade but that is where the school system left her. She is very excited now to learn. She is improving so much and we are hopeful that eventually she will close the gap between where she is now and where she should be. The DVD system is great because my daughter who is doing the helping for her daughter is also a special needs person. So the material is actually helping both mother and daughter Thank you for offering this great material. The .only problem we have is the cost is somewhat prohibitive for us. We are having to sacrifice a great deal in order to do this. Wish there was some kind of scholarship program for low income families. September 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by BJU all inclusive curriculum First year using this curriculum. With all the different guides and papers it can be confusing and frustrating. However, the content is solid. October 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I whole heartedly recommend!!! BJU homeschool has an outstanding product. I am especially impressed with the Science teacher, Mrs. Vick. She has REALLY worked very hard on always providing hands on examples of concepts that she is trying to teach. Math by Ms. Overly is also well done. It is clear and easy to understand. She also does Spelling. This seems to be a slightly older video series and could use a little updating. English and Handwriting is done by a very friendly teacher who my child finds very likeable. Reading is done well. We feel it can drag on a little with the book recommendations, but the program is done well and thoroughly explained. The only course that I have anything negative to say is Bible. Bible is my only source of frustration. I feel that using the King James Version of the Bible is very advanced for a third grader. If each of the verses was looked up together with the teacher and thoroughly explained, this would be acceptable. But the kids are left on their own to do it. Overall, I rate each of the catagories as excellent because the teachers are enthusiastic, thorough, and very clear and easy to understand. The program is well laid out and they have been very thoughtful about what goes into the day. I appreciate the video lesson guide as this make is simple to organize our day. October 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent I and most importantly, my kids, love this curriculum! It is easy to understand & they are learning so much! The way this curriculum shows God in science is wonderful! My 3rd grader and 1st grader do it together and love it! Highly recommend! It is expensive, but worth it! September 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the DVD's with BJU I am very pleased with the 3rd grade curriculum so far. The start has been some review with adding a few harder concepts along the way. The videos are mostly up to date and hold my 3rd graders attention. I am pleased with the Biblical integration used though out all of the subjects. Looking forward to another great year with BJU.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vacation Stations I think it is of great value to keep things fresh over the summer months. We used these several years ago with our own kids, and when I was considering prizes for a vacation-themed drawing in my Facebook homeschooling group, of course Vacation Stations came to mind! BJU Press was gracious enough to donate a copy, and our winner was thrilled to receive it! Thank you! July 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our parents that use them love them Our school parents have ordered these for a number of years and they love them. Once they have ordered them once they usually re-order July 16, 2014
