Courtney Vipperman

Hello, my name is Courtney Vipperman. For the past fifteen years I have been an owner/operator of a home daycare. I would teach each child from the age of 2 & up and assist the older children with their homework and additional work during the summer to better prepare everyone for their schoolwork. I have home schooled my own children as well. Along with teaching children regular school curriculum, I have felt it my calling to teach children at their level about the Lord. I am excited to be part of Utmost Academy co-op to help your student not only grow with standard education, but in God's Word as well!

Bonjour!  My name is Jennifer Matthews.  I graduated from Meredith College with a French degree and teaching certification.  After several years of teaching, I decided to stay home with my growing family.  I have been homeschooling my four children for the last eight years.  My faith is the foundation that keeps me going each day.  I accepted Christ as a young child and am continually learning more about who He is and His will for my life.  I am passionate about languages and other cultures.  I love opening these doors of the world to other children.
