"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference."

Mrs. Polson feels very privileged to be a part of Tulsa Classical Academy. Her journey in Classical Education began in 2007, when she felt led to begin homeschooling her daughter. Having an instant admiration for the idea of educating the “whole child”, she successfully implemented methods inspired by Charlotte Mason and Classical Education for many years, until her daughter’s graduation from high school. Homeschooling taught her that there are many different ways in which a child learns. This led her to look for a brick-and-mortar school for her son, where she also worked. Having taught students in many capacities over the years, from preschool to tutoring at the college level, Mrs. Polson sees character formation as one of her main strengths. Rather than viewing the Trivium as three separate stages, she instead prefers to see them as three strands working together simultaneously to weave a tapestry of delight and wonder for all students.


A proud alumna of The University of Tulsa, she is a big fan of all things related to TU. She enjoys attending TU football games with family and friends, exercising, running, playing tennis, listening to music and podcasts, and watching Jeopardy!
