Credentialed Classroom Teacher, Independent Study Advisor, Homeschool Coach, Homeschool Parent
With a diverse educational background, I've worn multiple hats in the educational world. I began as a classroom teacher and spent the majority of my career in a kindergarten classroom. Later, I became an independent study advisor for many different grade levels, however, I ultimately specialized in TK, K, and 1st grade families. I then transitioned to an administrative role, where I supported other Independent Study Advisors and ensured program compliance. Currently, I'm homeschooling our youngest child and loving the freedom that comes with being a home educator.
My journey, both in the classroom and as a parent, has equipped me to understand the unique needs of learners, including neurodiversity, gender non-conforming, and mental illness. I have also worked with 2E learners, accelerated learners, and gifted learners. I believe in seeing and authentically teaching the whole child. I'm here to support your homeschooling journey, regardless of your approach or experience level. I provide non-judgmental guidance to help you find the right path for your family, adapting as your journey evolves
I began my teaching career in a classroom and the years I spent in the classroom working with both children and their parents provided me with a wonderful background in education. My experience in the homeschool world and in homeschooling my own children led me to the decision to leave the traditional classroom and find a better way to help educate our children.
I spent 7 years working as an Independent Study Advisor (homeschool coach through a charter school). During my time there, I met with parents and students monthly. I helped the parents create learning plans, stay accountable to what they decided to do, work through behavior challenges, and most importantly, help them learn how to work with their child or children's learning styles. I connected with the students as well and reviewed work samples, discussed their learning, and got to know them as individual learners.
While I am just starting my own coaching business I have been supporting parents for over 15 years. I know the ins and outs of the homeschooling laws and requirements and I am here to help answer your questions and support you in your homeschooling journey.
I began homeschooling our oldest two children in 4th and 6th grades. Each one so very different from the other. The eldest chose a traditional high school experience while the younger was homeschooled through middle school and then chose a flexible program through high school allowing them to do the majority of their learning at home. I am now beginning the journey all over again with our kindergartner and I am so excited to have the opportunity to do it from the beginning!
