Raquel Werk


Raquel Werk lives with her husband in Maui, Hawaii.

She is working full-time creating online courses with her company called The Principled Teacher and leader of a local homeschool-hybrid program called Maui Christian Homeschool.

She has taught over 20 years using biblical principles in homeschooling her two children, leading other homeschool families, and training teachers at a Christian school. She has also given seminars at homeschool and teacher conferences and taught elementary and middle school students in public schools.

She was formally trained in the biblical worldview of education at “Teacher’s Training Course I-III” of University of the Nations under the tutelage of James Kilkenny at Youth With a Mission in Tyler, Texas using The Red Books published by The Foundation for American Christian Education: The Christian History of the Constitution of the United States of America: Christian Self-Government by Verna Hall and Teaching and Learning America’s Christian History: The Principle Approach® by Rosalie Slater; and a third red book called A Guide to American Christian Education for the Home and School: The Principle Approach® by James B. Rose and published by American Christian History Institute.

She also received a masters degree in curriculum design at Regent University learning from Dr. Elizabeth Youmans, author of The Noah Plan® History and Geography Curriculum Guide and President and Founder of Chrysalis International, home of the AMO® Program.

Her passion for the word of God and love of teaching continues to be the foundation of everything she does.

The Bible verse that inspires her work is Colossians 2:8, “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the traditions of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”
