Theresa Schlenz


Theresa was born and raised in Steubenville, Ohio. She holds a degree in English Literature and Mental Health and Human Services from Franciscan University of Steubenville. In addition to 5 years of employment at Franciscan’s admissions office, she has worked as a private tutor and in Seton Home Study School’s English department. She is certified in Levels I and II of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, and has been given the great joy and privilege of serving at Joyful Child Atrium for the past four years. She and her husband Joe homeschooled for 8 years, but now all their school-aged children are attending Good Shepherd School. She believes one of Good Shepherd’s most attractive features is their dedication to provide many of the best aspects of an ideal homeschool education, yet with the added benefit of the structure and community of a traditional school setting. What a gift it is to have a school option that complements, rather than competes with family life!
