My name is Mary Carroll, and I founded HVA in 2018. I am a lover of the Lord and often hear math in many sermons. Sharing my love for math with my students is my passion. I hold a 4-year degree in Engineering and a Master's in Education. I started off my grammar school years as a special education student with severe dyslexia. However, I homeschooled my three children, and now I love learning, even though it was a struggle for me earlier. I hope this gives you hope when you are struggling with your own child's needs.

My Story

Mary has consistently demonstrated a profound dedication to teaching and sharing her faith with students. During the course of eight years, she expertly homeschooled her children while concurrently pursuing and ultimately obtaining a degree in electromechanical engineering from Miami University. Following her children's graduation, Mary continued to pursue her educational goals and obtained a Master's in Education from Xavier University. She subsequently embarked on a career as a mathematics teacher, leveraging her extensive educational background and her passion for teaching.
Over the course of six years, Mary gained valuable experience teaching online at the Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow and furthered her expertise by earning a blended online learning certificate from the esteemed University of Cincinnati. She currently holds a valid teaching certificate in the state of Ohio for grades 7-12 mathematics.
Mary's personal life is marked by over three decades of happy marriage and the joy of raising three children. Her oldest son, Mark, and his wife, Wenting, have a son named Andrew. Her younger twins, Christopher and Rachael, are also married. Christopher has one child, Abigail, and Rachael has two children, Hayley and Jaxson. Beyond her family responsibilities, Mary is an avid traveler, having explored destinations such as China, Guatemala, Brazil, and various locations throughout the United States.
Professionally, Mary is a dedicated high school mathematics teacher and the founder and manager of His Vessel Academy. This esteemed educational institution is deeply committed to creating an educational environment that incorporates God's presence into every subject and classroom and promotes a holistic approach to education. Mary is currently engaged in writing and developing the curricula for His Vessel Academy, which incorporates a problem-based framework that emphasizes rich problem-solving while integrating Biblical lessons.
