Candice App

I grew up in a Christian home and I'm the oldest of 7 kids. I received Christ at the age of 7 and have a desire to serve the Lord. Growing up I went on several mission trips and worked at Word of Life camps during the summer. Having a heart for missions, I went to the Word of Life Bilingual Bible Institute in Argentina. I have attended Christian, public and I am a homeschool graduate. I was a part of a homeschool hand bell choir where I competed, with my sister, in Teens Involved and won 1st place. I have been homeschooling my own kids since they began school. We are actively involved in our church, Grace Baptist. Since I've started homeschooling I have developed a love for science and I enjoy teaching and serving at TCA.

Amanda Burnette

Beyond a Brick builds up young minds through the use of LEGO education to explore real world challenges and seek solutions by fostering and facilitating deficiencies found in a traditional classroom environment. We believe that learning is by doing and by using LEGO education in addition to other tools, the world of STEM is brought to life by applying hands-on projects to real world challenges and creative solutions. Our outreach is on three fronts. We are partners with Tennessee First LEGO League as well as veteran judges at the World Festival; founders of the LEGO Extravaganza at the Tennessee Valley Fair operating for 7 years and expanded to nationwide fairs; STEM educators using LEGOs, partnering with The University of Tennessee, The MUSE, Oak Ridge Children’s Museum, Destination Imagination, Girl Scouts of Southern Appalachian, River’s Edge Christian Academy, Classical Conversation, private schools, Knox County Libraries, corporations and The Village, an in-house treatment facility for troubled teens.

Shannon Gribble

My name is Shannon Gribble. I have been married for almost 20 years. I am a full time stay at home wife and mom. My husband, Darrell, is a truck driver. God wrecked us in a mighty way and we were both saved at the same time about 13 years ago. We are partners with Trinity Community Church. I am coming to the end of our 10th year of homeschooling. My oldest son, Bradley, will be graduating this May 2018 and my youngest son, Nicholas, will be a freshman this upcoming school year. My children have not always learned the same way as everyone else. We have had our struggles, but God has been faithful. I have used many different kinds of curriculum over all these years. My hobbies, well, I am still searching to find who I am. My focus and attention has truly been completely on my kids since I gave birth.

I was blessed to be able to study at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga from 1995-1999 and then finish up my B.S. in Exercise Physiology Under the College of Education, with a Math Minor in Aug 2000.

I also have been able to have the blessing of being able to have a catering business since 2002 and have also been a Pampered Chef Consultant since 2007. I am also currently the Marketing and Public Relations Director for a Small Food Franchise as well. I am excited to see what wonderful things will transpire in the Fall semester as we set out on this journey. I can not wait to see what I will learn from these children in my time with them.
