Faculty

Dawnshelle Wold

Dawnshelle Wold graduated Cum Laude from Bethel University in St. Paul, MN, in 1995, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. After a short career as a marketing assistant with Alfred Rashid CFP & Associates in Minneapolis, she and her husband started a family, where she encountered the challenges of parenting three wonderful and educationally diverse children. This experience led her to become a Special Education Paraprofessional in the Anoka-Hennepin School District in Anoka, MN. Upon moving to Wilmore after her husband joined the faculty at Asbury University, Dawnshelle served as a teacher and program coordinator for Yellowwood Success Academy, formerly in Lexington, from 2016 until May of 2020.

 

When the Yellowwood school closed, Dawnshelle set out to fill the void for an alternative to traditional schooling options in the Jessamine county and southwest Lexington area by founding Wilmore Crossing Academy. Rather than being a new idea, micro-schools are a reinvention of the old concept of the one-room schoolhouse. Their growing popularity stems from a general dissatisfaction for some parents with how traditional schools often structure their content. Homeschool families are increasingly drawn to micro-schools because of how they establish a core set of learning experiences that parents can then expand on and individualize for their children.

Jerri Hemenover

Jerri teaches an assortment of courses and enhanced electives. From conveying abstract expressionism in her art class, to divulging into enhanced key tactics for productivity in marketing, she finds herself well-versed in promoting educational growth. Her love is to help students build personal and educational centered confidence for next generational leadership. Through constant investment and cultivation of meaningful conversations, she finds joy in witnessing the overall growth and development of her students. "It is the creative aspect of learning that fuels my fire for teaching."

When asked what sets WCA apart from other micro schools, she answered, "the caliber of teachers, prime, diverse location, and student-driven learning. All the teachers at WCA commonly strive in sync to promote learning at a divergent manner that prepares students for future learning. From a diverse teaching staff, WCA is able to conduct meaningful and impactful conversations encompassing various nationalities."

 

She received her bachelor's degree from Illinois Wesleyan University, with a major in art and a minor in music. She then acquired a master's degree in Christian ministries from Asbury Seminary. She has been teaching for five years. 

Casondra Radford

Casondra teaches English, geography, culture and literature at WCA. She loves relationship building, connecting people, and interacting with others. She believes that the small classrooms and understanding of students with educational differences is what sets WCA apart from other schools. Since she was a child, she's had a passion for teaching. While in school growing up, she would finish her work early and help other students. 

She has her certification in teaching English as a foreign language, masters in intercultural studies, and bachelors in theatre with a minor in Spanish. In 2006, she officially began teaching at a language camp in China. She's been teaching Adult Education for the past five years, and her eagerness to get back into middle school instruction led her to WCA.
