My name is Jason Kneeland, and I have been teaching language arts and English, at Western Christian Academy, for the past four years. I have been happily married since 2001, and I have a daughter who is in 8th grade and a son who is in 6th grade. I obtained my bachelor’s degree, in Linguistics (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), from California State University, Fresno. Soon after, I completed my Multiple Subjects Credential from the same institution. My hobbies include: landscaping my yard and my friend’s yards, going on trips (especially camping), and writing poetry. I think Christian education is important for developing the positive character traits of future leaders.
