Tim Polelle

Ph.D. Student

Findlay, Ohio


B.A. Hillsdale College, History & Philosophy, 2019

“I am interested in teaching at the college level or leading a K-12 school. I was very lucky to attend Hillsdale College and to teach at great schools, which showed me what education at its highest can do.”


Tim was raised by two historians in Ohio who taught him to seek the truth. Tim studied history and philosophy at Hillsdale College, which led him to teaching 5th grade for two years in Idaho at Treasure Valley Classical Academy. He returned to Hillsdale to teach 4th grade at Hillsdale Academy but decided to return to formal study here at the Van Andel School of Statesmanship. Tim loves teaching and the study of political philosophy.
