My home education journey began when I was a student in the 1990’s and now I enjoy teaching our three dynamic kids. My husband and I lead a local homeschool support group. I also sit on the board of a Charlotte Mason style co-op. As a family we love the outdoors and playing games! My desire is to serve homeschooling families in NC with faith, joy and excellence. If I can encourage or assist you with anything, please email me.
