Brandon Pearce, ABD/ALT
I am the proud father of 3 great kids and husband to an amazing woman. After high school I lived in Argentina as a missionary for two years. Upon returning home, my father and I started our own company renovating home exteriors.
At the age of 30, I returned to school to pursue a degree in Engineering, but after two semesters, I realized that my true love was for History and Literature. I graduated summa cum laude from the Honors department majoring in history and minoring in English Literature. I decided to go to Western Michigan University for a Masters degree in Medieval literature and history. While in Michigan I taught Medieval Humanities classes for the University.
The final leg of my graduate school odyssey was to Washington D.C. to pursue my PhD. I studied the history of Medieval England and Anglo-Saxon literature at The Catholic University of America. At both WMU and CUA, I took years of Latin and studied the history of English language extensively. During my PhD program, I taught History of Western Civilization and American History at Northern Virginia Community College, where I was honored to be chosen as the Adjunct of the Year in 2017.
I love teaching Humanities subjects because I believe our future is dependent on young people gaining wisdom rather than just knowledge. I love being in the classroom with your scholars and seeing them make connections between their own personal experience and the great books and events of history. Thank you for letting me be their mentor!
