The Perfect Team — Educators, Authors, Architects, Interior Designers, & Parents
Our company provides homeschool courses for K-12 education that expand students understanding of the built world.
As homeschool parents, university educators, practicing architects, interior designers, and construction professionals we see the need for advanced inquiry in the building fields. Students should understand the importance of architecture in our history and daily lives. No part of our day goes without encountering some form of architecture. It provides us shelter, security, and a sense of place. Architecture is a defining key to all history.
Travis Kelly Wilson - President
Professor Wilson, a designer and author, lives in Falls of Rough, Kentucky with his wife and two children. His design career has focused on experimental residential, modular design-build, and emergency medical design. He holds a B.A. in History, Government, and City and Regional Planning from Western Kentucky University and a Master of Architecture from The University of Oklahoma.
As a high school student, he started participating in international study. Over the years, he has visited and lead students around the world in a variety of art and architecture experiences. Professor Wilson believes that experiencing the world provides a better understanding of civilizations and the importance of architecture.
For the past ten years, he has been a professor of design at Western Kentucky University. While teaching at college, Professor Wilson started seeing a positive change in student success with online courses: student grades increased, greater student interaction, higher quality writing, better time management. As homeschool parents, the family saw a need to provide resources in architecture and the visual arts. Therefore, they created Foundations In Architecture to prepare homeschool students for futures in the architectural professions.
Densie Barrett - K-4 Educator
As a teacher, I believe the essential element in effective teaching is compassion. Students need to feel loved and cared about by their teachers and peers. In order to teach compassion, a teacher must possess it. My job is to daily display compassion through my attitudes, gestures, and verbal communications. People learn through different senses and my responsibility is to get to know each student and prepare and present the curriculum in diverse ways to meet the learning needs of each student.
A good parent-teacher relationship is also necessary. Consistent communication through meetings, phone contact, weekly notes and newsletters should be a high priority. Sharing successes and achievements encourage students to keep trying and builds a common bond.

Christi Wilson - Curriculum Developer
Mrs. Wilson teaches her two children at Falls of Rough, Kentucky. After volunteering for five years at a local Christian Academy, she knew that her children would excel if content was individualized. Reading, writing, and arithmetic along with individualized studies will develop stronger, more rounded students. This allowed the Wilson family to travel and expand their understanding of the world. She holds a B.A. in Psychology and Creative Writing from Western Kentucky University and a Juris Doctorate from Oklahoma City University.
