What you teach:
I started teaching in a Christian elementary school, and now I teach my own three children at home. We use a wide variety of materials and experiences to cover all subject areas.
Why you started:
I've always loved teaching. It's in my blood. I chose to home educate because I wanted to provide higher quality education, social interactions, emotional stability, security learning opportunities, moral training, sense of identity, and use of time than I believe traditional school settings can provide.

What you love about it now:
I love it that our family is very close knit. We love being together and experiencing life together. I love it that I am privileged to witness learning and growth in my children, and that we can celebrate milestones and achievements together. I love spending each day with these three interesting and brilliant people.
Why you keep doing it:
Conviction. Although I sometimes struggle with feelings of inadequacy, or with patience, or fatigue, I do not doubt that my children are right where they are supposed to be. I am convicted, and I trust that our hard work, prayers, and sacrifice will result in healthy, intelligent, well-adjusted, productive, compassionate and independent followers of Jesus.
