Chere earned her Bachelor of Science at Marietta College and her PhD at Indiana University. She has been teaching at Lighthouse Christian Academy since the 2015-2016 academic year. Her classes include Life Science, Biology, and Anatomy and Physiology. Prior to teaching at Lighthouse she taught at the college level for almost twenty years. Chere believes that it is important for students not only to understand biological concepts but to comprehend how these concepts fit into the larger picture of life and our biblical worldview. She strives to actively engage students in scientific inquiry through class activities and discussions, online homework assignments, videos, and podcasts. Her favorite bible verse is Philippians 4:13: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Chere and her husband Greg have three adult children.
