Timbersong Bat Cave Faculty
Bryan Tomes: Academic Director, BA in History

"I love seeing the changes each one of our students goes through at Timbersong. Hearing back from families about the success their children are having at home is the greatest reward possible."

Bonnie Richardson: Academic Director, MA in Critical and Cultural Theory

I am committed to supporting and guiding teachers and building relationships with students, supporting them and encouraging them to find their strengths, address their challenges, and push themselves to harness their full potential.

Shane Parker: History and Language Arts Instructor, MA in History 

Working with, and challenging my students, through vigorous discussion and debate is my utmost passion. Through sharpening both my students' analytical and critical thinking skills, I hope to prepare these young men to live and thrive in our ever-changing world.

Alexis Allen: Math and Science Instructor, MA in Education 

I am excited to join the Timbersong community and work with the students of Equinox. Over the past few years I have worked as a math and science teacher for US Embassy schools in some fascinating countries.  I enjoy interacting with students and assisting them in reaching their potential both as students and young adults. 

Zach Allen: Science & Math Teacher 

I teach math and science classes and love using creative project based learning activities to engage and challenge students.


I believe that empowering students through their academic experience is a critical part of their journey and I enjoy the opportunity to build a rapport with students.
