Josh Pauling has been teaching high school history for over a decade. Prior to teaching, he received training in theology and philosophy with a B.A. from Messiah College, graduate work at Reformed Theological Seminary, and an M.A.T. in History from Winthrop University. He is interested in the cultural intersections of history, philosophy and theology, and the beliefs and practices of historic Christianity, which has led him to All Saints Lutheran Church (LCMS) where he is head elder. He also balances intellectual work with the satisfaction of a family homestead of sorts where he makes custom furniture and restores vintage woodworking machinery, while his wife Kristi raises chickens, tends garden, keeps bees, and cooks up a storm. They have two children who are being classically homeschooled by the “best teacher in the house,” his wife Kristi.
