Hi to everyone! I live in south eastern Arizona with my four children ages 5-17. For twelve years I home schooled my children through all grades k-12. I have a Bachelors degree in Business Administration with a minor in Computer Science. I also have a valid Arizona IVP fingerprint card and substitute teaching certificate. My children of their own choosing are attending public school now and I feel that helping other kids with their educational journey is where I need to be now.
I home schooled my now 12 year old daughter k-4th grade. She was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 5. I refused conventional medications and treated her with diet and love! She is now enrolled in public school in the 7th grade. Her last report card was as follows: 80 grammar, 86 Math, 90 reading, 97 Science, and 99 Social Studies!
I was raised in a Christian home and had private Bible studies from 13 -30 years. I study Religious history on my own in order to compare the history of the world to the modern day Bible. In college I translated Bible verses to Hebrew and back to grasp fully the contexts and constraints of English on the Bible translations. I am also very familiar with the Torah and the Quran and their validation of the Bible history.
I have an Arizona substitute teaching certificate and fingerprint card. I home schooled my now 17 year old daughter from k-8th grade. She is now enrolled as a Senior in public school. Her current GPA is a 3.96! I can provide a copy of her transcripts if needed.
I attended Piedmont College from 1992-1996 and obtained my BBA. While there I took Marketing 320 and my final grade was a 3.0
I was a caretaker for my grandmother in her last years battling kidney failure. That caused me to research foods and herbs and their interactions with the human body. I have four children still at home. Two of these have never been sick enough to go to the doctor and have a shot. I spend hours researching nutrition and its impact on children's learning, adult health and aging adult diseases.
I taught three of my five children to read at home using phonics. My now 7 year old second grade daughter has a 99 average on phonics and is the top reader in her class. I help her practice with flash cards and phonics videos.
I took religion classes as electives in College. I have studied many religions on my own since this time including Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Taoism, Native American and African tribal religion. In 2009 and 2010 I made two trips to Egypt to better understand the relationship between the Muslims and Coptic Christians there.
While attending Piedmont College I took a sociology class and passed this class with a B average.
I was always a good student in primary school as well as college because of my study skills. I believe the proper use of time management and organizational skills are essential to studying all subjects. I have set study guidelines and rules at home for my children and they are all A students.
I have a natural affection for all animals. When I lived in Georgia I visited the Atlanta Zoo and the Columbia Zoo at least 3 times a year. I take my children on hiking trips once a month to a different environment to observe and study the animals in their natural habitat. I have also maintained farm animals for most of my life and currently have a bat habitat in my back yard.
