Angela Quigley – Director
Angela’s primary role at The Old Schoolhouse® is to oversee the general operations of the company, including all financial-related functions. Angela first came to The Old Schoolhouse® in February 2007. Angela and her husband live in the central Kansas area. The Quigleys started homeschooling when their oldest was in first grade. Angela says, “I was one of those that started with the thought that everything had to be like ‘school.’ I have learned a lot since that first year and am so thankful for the many dedicated homeschoolers who share their stories and personal challenges in each issue of The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine. What a blessing and encouragement you have all been to me.” The Quigleys have now graduated both of their daughters. Besides work at TOS, you can find her quilting, shopping, cooking, reading, bird watching, singing, and spending time with her hubby of almost thirty years. Her favorite time of the day is dinnertime around the table with family! Angela says, “My mission at TOS is to see the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ furthered and homeschoolers inspired to do their greatest work ever—raising children who want to serve the Lord with their whole heart”.

Ginny Miller – Interactive Content Coordinator
Ginny lives in Northeast Tennessee in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains. Her husband, Joel, is a student pastor at a local church where he has served for the past eight years. They have two sons who are currently in ninth and tenth grades. Ginny has a Bachelor of Arts in English Education and worked as an ESL teacher, adult developmental studies teacher, and spent one year teaching English at a private school. She also has extensive administrative experience in medical offices and as a bookkeeping assistant. Ginny has been a stay-at-home mom since having their first son. It was a natural transition to start homeschooling her two boys in PreK and Kindergarten even though she never planned to homeschool. God had other plans and eleven years later, the boys are still homeschooled as well as attending a hybrid school for several classes. While homeschooling, Ginny worked for six years as the director of a local homeschool community before joining The Old Schoolhouse in August 2020. Ginny started out the first few months in the sales department before transitioning to Schoolhouse Teachers’ interactive content team. Ginny worked for several months as an interactive content developer before adding front-end leader as part of her job. In December 2021, Ginny accepted the position of Interactive Content Coordinator. While Ginny coordinates the efforts and leads the interactive content team, she still loves and continues to develop interactive content for SchoolhouseTeachers.com.
