Becky Durham was raised in Mississippi and the first twenty-eight years of life her “world” was mostly southern. After marrying David Durham, however, she discovered more of this diverse and creative human planet as they lived their first ten years of marriage based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and Lausanne, Switzerland with Youth With a Mission. Their three sons were born during their years in Europe. They launched their homeschooling adventure when their family moved back to Nashville. Becky began teaching Geography at The Academy Tutorial in 2005 and still loves learning more about the many ways people live their lives, along with her students. In 2009, she added Junior High Writing to the list of classes she teaches at The Academy Tutorial. This year, she and her husband, David Durham, will offer a new course called Global Studies. She is also the Administrative Director for the Academy, supporting Vicki Day.
