I’m Raquel Werk, founder of The Principled Teacher.

Hi!! I am happy you are here!! I am originally from California and have lived in Hawaii on the island of Maui with my husband and two kids since 1995. I homeschooled my kids and other people’s kids in my home for 12 years. I also taught in the classroom in private and public schools for 8 years. I have a master’s degree in education with an emphasis in Christian curriculum design from Regent University. My passion is Christian education and I love children. One of my favorite verses is Colossians 2:3, “In [Christ] are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Another favorite verse is Psalm 144:12, “That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; That our daughters may be as pillars, Sculptured in palace style.” When children find their value and purpose, they stand tall and shine bright as lights in a dark world.

I look forward to discovering these hidden treasures with you and watching the impact you make as you instill them in your children!!
