Renee Mathis, a native Texan, has been married to Steve since 1982. They have 5 grown children, 2 sons-in-law, 1 daughter-in-law, and 7 grandchildren. Houston is still home, for now.
Renee began teaching in 1988 when her oldest turned 5. Along with homeschooling her own children, she has spent 19 years as an administrator and writing/literature teacher with PREP Classes, a homeschool tutorial serving over 250 students. A graduate of the CiRCE Apprenticeship program, she taught for the CiRCE Online Academy and she is entering her 5th year as the Head Mentor of the Gulf Coast Apprenticeship.
Her love of teaching and discipleship carries over to her local church where she leads the women’s ministry team and teaches Bible study. She’s privileged to serve as a women’s advisor to the board of directors for Covenant College.
In her spare time, Renee enjoys nothing more than hopping on a plane to visit the aforementioned children and grandchildren. She can usually be found in the kitchen baking, in the gym lifting weights, or anywhere drinking coffee.
