Kate Orton joins VCS after a surprising journey through classical education towards teaching. She attended a classical school from 7th to 12th grade, then soon discovered her love for kids after working for two summers as a camp counselor. Upon graduating from Cedarville University with an English degree, she moved to South Korea to teach K-6th grade ESL, and discovered her love for teaching. She now lives in Blacksburg with her husband, Andrew. Kate is thrilled to see each of these points in her story converge to joining the VCS team.
After graduating from Radford University and working five years in the tech industry, Tonia landed her dream job: motherhood. She has classically taught her children at home ever since while working to support fellow homeschooling families by teaching co-ops, classes, and private lessons for over a decade. She and her husband, Brent, own and operate Reliant Farm, LLC on fifteen acres in Craig County where they live with their two daughters. While books will always be her favorite, she also loves learning through the beauty of music, nature, and the people she meets. She is thrilled to pass on this love of learning to the children of VCS.
