I love investing in students and leaders of all ages through teaching, writing, and speaking. I aim to help people learn lessons from the past, to inspire them to live wisely in the present. I love teaching because I love learning, and the pursuit of wisdom, in community with other learners.
As a teacher, my goal is to help equip and train students to embark on a lifetime of learning. As a Christian, my goal is to help them think about everything in a way grounded in the Scriptures, and informed by the wisdom of the Christian tradition.
Statement of Faith
I believe in the historic doctrines of the Christian church. I affirm the absolute priority of the Holy Scriptures, and the interpretive authority of documents like the Nicene Creed. I affirm the points of belief and practice that have traditionally been part of Christian teaching (in regards to the sanctity of life, the meaning and practice of marriage, the nature of gender, etc.).
Beyond my commitment to “core,” or “mere” Christianity, I love and value the Reformed tradition. By training and inclination, I affirm many of the distinctives of Reformed churches. But, like John Calvin and the other reformers, I also love and value our church fathers, and church mothers.
I feel most at home in churches that worship according to the ancient liturgies of the church, but I also realize that God works through all sorts of worship styles and denominational structures, for His own purposes.
One of my goals in all of my teaching is to help my students understand and appreciate the wisdom of the past, to equip them to live wisely in the present.
> The Rhetoric class taught by Mr. Soderberg is excellent. Even though...the Phaedrus dialogues are difficult, he presented it in the way that is relatable, which inspired students to be interested in the subject and have lively discussions. The review games and speech assignments that illustrate the learnings kept my student interested and motivated. It is a wonderful opportunity learn rhetoric. - Peiwen Lu, Kepler parent
> Mr. Soderberg is an excellent teacher. He makes tough material engaging. [My child] was never bored during class, but rather looked forward to the weekly meetings. - Kimberly Locke
