Mr. Robert Chance has been teaching at Sacred Heart since 2008. A native of Detroit, he earned an associate's degree in Liberal Arts at Cardinal Newman College and majored in Biology at Wayne State University. He went on to achieve Masters degrees in Religious Education (Notre Dame Catechetical Inst., Angelicum), General Science, Theology, and Physical Science (Columbus State University). He cites as his interests "the relationship between Theology and Science in forming a world view, Theology of the Body and Chastity formation, and studying so as to articulate better a Christian Anthropology. His hobbies include woodworking and projects around the house as well as gardening and landscaping, reading and watching action movies, playing pinochle and following the Tigers, Red Wings, Lions and Michigan Wolverine football. He and his wife, Coleen, were married in 1985 and have five children.
Mr. Hobbs is a native Hoosier. Born in Kokomo, Indiana, he initially aspired to be a Harlem Globetrotter, but over time gradually shifted his ambition to the practice of law. Mr. Hobbs studied English and Greek at Wabash College, where he was a member of the service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega and captain of the rowing team. A chance encounter with a Legionary priest inspired him to change his focus from litigation to education, and in 1997 Mr. Hobbs moved to Chicago's southwest suburbs to help found White Pines Academy (now Everest Academy). For seven years, he held positions ranging from bus driver to principal, while earning a Master's degree in Educational Leadership from Lewis University. Mr. Hobbs gladly returned to Indiana as a co-founder of Sacred Heart Apostolic School, where he has taught nearly every subject. These days, he mostly teaches Greek and upper-level English.
In 2003 Mr. Hobbs married his wife Anne Marie in Rome, where they were blessed by Pope John Paul II. Mr. and Mrs. Hobbs share, among other things, a vocation to Regnum Christi, five interesting little children, a minivan, and a mortgage.
In his spare time, Mr. Hobbs enjoys shooting free throws (and wishing he were a Harlem Globetrotter) and reading the works of G.K. Chesterton. He also teaches CCD at his parish, St. John Kanty, and practices extreme humility as a long-suffering fan of the Chicago Bears and Cubs.
Anthony Klosterman began teaching at Sacred Heart Apostolic School in August, 2010. He presently teaches English, Latin and History, specializing in political history and American Government. Originally coming from the east coast, Klosterman achieved a B.A. in Political Science and Economics from Christendom College in Virginia. Prior to that he attended and graduated from Immaculate Conception Apostolic School, the
Legion of Christ's minor-seminary in New Hampshire. Klosterman currently lives in La Porte, Indiana with his wife, Loren, and their two children, Mariana and Damian. When asked why he teaches at Sacred Heart, he said, "Teaching these dedicated young men is a priceless reward in itself, because I believe their striving toward Christ drags me closer to Him every day. Because of this, I take my work here very seriously but with great joy."
Mr. Timothy Murphy first earned an associate degree in Religious arts at Northeastern Bible College, then bachelor of Science in Christian Studies with a Biology minor at Hillsdale College. He spent the summers of 1989 and 1990 at the Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Keble College: Oxford University, and Wycliffe Hall: Oxford University. Finally, he achieved a Masters in History, with concentrations in early through modern US history and modern European History. His teaching experience stretches over 15 years, more than four of them now at Sacred Heart. Raised in New Jersey, recovering in Indiana (in his own words…), he and his wife Stephanie have been happily married for 19 years and have six children.
Born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa, Mr. Quentin Wadle earned a B.S. in Mathematics and B.A. in Secondary Education at Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa. There he also met his wife; they have 7 children, ranging in age from 11 years to 1 year.
"I find mathematics beautiful and intriguing:," he comments, "its numerous ways to describe unending phenomena within a limited space and with so few symbols enable me to catch a glimpse of our Creator and how our Father chooses to operate through humanity to spread His love. In my teaching, I hope to convey order and beauty and perseverance that can be found in math. Also, teaching Latin has helped me to learn and teach that life is not only a science but also an art."
Outside the classroom, he enjoys watching NFL football ("Go Bears and Chiefs!"), as well as playing many team sports, gardening, and attempting home-improvement projects.
