Our Passion

The seed for Higher Rock Education was planted in 1978 when I took my first teaching job at the Gow School, a private boarding school for dyslexic boys in upstate New York. The administration gave me the opportunity to teach high school economic theory. Students relished the pertinence of economics and savored the application to “the real world”.

For thirty years I helped customers secure the best mortgages to achieve their financial objectives. In counseling clients I was struck with the economic ignorance of our population, only to learn that high school economic theory is not offered in most high schools. My passion grew. I believe that economic theory should be required to graduate! My children were certainly going to take an economics course! At the time our children were attending Cresset Christian Academy. I am forever thankful to the administration for giving me the opportunity to start an economics program at Cresset. The experience fueled my passion and commitment to furthering the education of economic theory. I increased my efforts by participating on Money Talk, a weekly radio show for several years. Listeners frequently would tell us that they wished economics had been offered to their children in high school. During this period my Christian faith matured. I became even more committed to Christian education, and the importance of including Scripture in the classroom. Economics or business education without a Christian foundation could send the wrong message!

The internet has provided a powerful tool to take our passion worldwide. I am thrilled that my daughter shares my passion. Together we chose to launch Higher Rock Education, LLC in January 2011 after research confirmed most schools still do not offer economic theory. Our goal is to provide supplemental material to assist students, teachers and schools in learning or teaching economics.
