True North Homeschool Academy Teacher
Mrs. Pool teaches Latin, Literature and History.
Tamara Pool has been married 28 years and homeschooled her three children, now ages 20, 22, and 23, all the way through high school. She earned her undergraduate degree from North Central University in MN, majoring in Interdisciplinary Studies: Communication Arts & Psychology. While homeschooling she assisted her husband in his pastoral role and also tutored/coached students in classical subjects, voice, and drama.
One of her favorite things is encouraging parents and inspiring teens to pursue deep relationships with God and family and embrace their educational journey. Tamara has served as a conference speaker and homeschool consultant for over 10 years. When she’s not teaching, you’ll find Mrs. Pool enjoying family time, making (or tidying) a creative mess, or studying for her Master of Arts degree in Classical Studies.
Professional Degrees & Experience

She and her husband are both licensed ministers and have served on multi-staffed churches from 1994-2019 when her husband transitioned into hospice chaplaincy and she took a part-time position with Joppa as Communications Director.
I asked my children and they couldn’t come up with one weakness. I recommend your classes (Tamara Pool) to everyone because I think you are a fantastic teacher. Strengths: fun, engaging, organized, clear communicator, the right balance of rigor and grace. Weaknesses: none, zero, zilch.
