7th Grade Humanities Teacher/Upper School Curriculum Director
Carl Sohmer graduated with a degree in Homiletics from Evangel University and his M.A. in Philosophy from Biola University. Carl is pursuing a Ph.D. in Philosophy at the University of California, Irvine. Carl has spent the last six years as a teacher at a classical Christian school and as an Adjunct Professor at Biola University, where he grew to be committed to classical Christian education because it uniquely enables the intellectual and moral development of persons through the great works by the grace of God. He believes it is one of the most powerful ways to lead young people to a rich and deep love of God and others.
Carl is very excited to serve as a teacher and curriculum director at Bethel Classical Academy, where he teaches 7th-grade humanities suite of classes which focuses on studying the Great Works of Biblical and Ancient Civilizations to cultivate wisdom and virtue. Carl is training for a marathon and enjoys backpacking, reading, movies, Bob Dylan, good coffee, and spending time with his friends.
