Hello! I have a Bachelor's degree in English from Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan and studied Education at the Master's level at Antioch University in Yellow Springs, Ohio. I successfully homeschooled three children for thirteen years and they are all in public school now and getting A's and B's. As a home educator, I also taught reading, poetry, playwriting and dance at our local homeschooling cooperative.

Prior to becoming a homeschooling mom, I worked as a tutor and substitute teacher so I have a wealth of rich experience to draw from. I worked one-on-one as well as in groups of children to help them achieve their educational goals.

I look forward to working with you or your child in the near future!
