A native of South-Central Indiana, Mrs. Rousey earned her Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education, with concentrations in Chemistry and Mathematics, from Indiana University. She holds an Indiana Teachers License in secondary education. Mrs. Rousey’s current classes include Eighth Grade Physical Science, Earth and Space, Biology, and Chemistry. Her favorite biblical passage is Jeremiah 29:11-13: “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.” Verse 11 plays an important role in how Mrs. Rousey’s classes are structured. First, the classes seek to teach students to see the workmanship of God through science. Secondly, she seeks to teach the students how God has designed the earth, the universe, and living things to reflect who He is. To accomplish this task, she strives to bring a variety of activities into her classroom to assist different learning styles and provide real world applications of science to the classroom. Mrs. Rousey and her husband Michael have two daughters, Hannah and Abagail, both of whom have attended Lighthouse Christian Academy.
