Jane Dearing

Jane DearingJane Dearing has served Covenant Classical School for the last twenty-three years and received the Excellence in Teaching Award in 2010. First and foremost, teaching English and history are her passions because integrated courses avail the opportunity for students to marvel and engage in God’s story. However, a secondary pursuit has been to research curricula and create class structures. As a result of this study, her contributions to CCS include implementing developmental testing and the Sing, Spell, Read, and Write curriculum in Kindergarten, compiling a systematic language arts program and founding the Oregon Trail experience in fifth grade, and designing an integrated English/history middle school humanities curriculum. In addition to teaching, she has functioned as the Curriculum Committee Chairman, Upper School Field Trip Coordinator, Dean of the Logic School, Dean of Administration and Student Affairs, and  Co-Head of School.

Jane attended James Madison University and Christopher Newport College of the College of William and Mary graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree. Course studies included emphasis in elementary education, history, and administration.  She is extremely grateful that all four of her children, Heather, Ashleigh, Mauri, and John Mark, graduated from Covenant Classical School and delighted to be the proud grandmother of nine.
