- Prior to coming to Oaks in 2015, Mr. Bellum taught as a university instructor, SAT Critical Reading instructor, Latin tutor, and private high school teacher. Mr. Bellum's educational philosophy has as its foundation the words of the Apostle Paul: "And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." It is his hope and prayer that his students learn to love the study of language and culture not only as a means to an academic end, but as a way to access and understand the staggering multiplicity of the human experience, to transcend their own cultural perspective, and ultimately to learn compassion for all people as a result of seeing the world through another's eyes.
