Bio

My childhood goal was to be a teacher and mother. After obtaining my associate's degree in early childhood education, I transferred to SUNY Oswego. I earned a BS degree in elementary and middle school education, plus successfully passed the National Teachers' Exam. Upon graduating I began teaching at a local Christian school.

My childhood goal was to be a teacher and mother. After obtaining my associate's degree in early childhood education, I transferred to SUNY Oswego. I earned a BS degree in elementary and middle school education, plus successfully passed the National Teachers' Exam. Upon graduating I began teaching at a local Christian school. After 20 years of homeschooling my children, I returned to the classroom. I currently teach high school American Government and United States History.

When my first child was kindergarten age, we began homeschooling. Our four children were educated at home and are all homeschool graduates. Two have successfully graduated from college, one is a junior at Virginia Tech and the youngest is attending a local community college. My greatest accomplishments during 20 years of homeschooling has been teaching my children to read and encouraging them to be life-long learners.

For the last 3 years I have traveled to China to work with Chinese English teachers. In addition to teaching basic English and phonics skills our team of teachers provides cultural training. In addition to teaching, I worked on curriculum development and provided oversight to the team.
I am also an accomplished seamstress.

I have a BS in elementary and middle school education with a concentration in the social sciences. I held a New York state teaching license for 7 years and taught elementary grades in a private school. I homeschooled my children from kindergarten to high school graduation. During that time, I also taught various classes in homeschool co-op settings. I used a variety of curriculum over the 20 years our children were schooled at home. I believe it is best to teach a child based on their learning style. I also believe, interested directed learning is one of the most effective and enjoyable ways to homeschool.
