I graduated from Grace College in 1987, majoring in Elementary Education.  Four weeks after graduating I married my husband, Larry.  I taught preschool for a year before our first child was born.  My main job for the last twenty-three years has been that of a stay-at-home mom to our four children.  In 1997, we made the decision to begin homeschooling our children.  We are now in our fourteenth year and three of our kids have graduated, leaving just one at home.

During my years of homeschooling, my biggest passion has always been in the area of teaching history.  I have developed my own history unit studies, organized and taught history co-ops and classes, and helped start a history-based homeschool group/co-op at my church.  I have always tried to integrate what we were studying in history into the other subject areas with my own children.

Aside from homeschooling, I enjoy reading, planning vacations (especially going to places we’ve studied in history), spending time at the beach, and trying new recipes.  I also enjoy spending time with my new granddaughter.  My family and I attend South Church, where my husband and I are active in the Jr. High ministry.
