Welcome to the About Me page on All About Homeschool Curriculum website. I appreciate you taking the time to visit this website and hope that you will return often.
I am the mother of ten biological "arrows from the Lord" and an "adopted daughter," Natalie (pictured 2nd from left.) She lived with us over the summer and has been like a member of our family ever since.
She loves to refer to herself as "the oldest of eleven children."
My husband Wayne and I reside in TN with our ten children, six of whom still live at home. The two oldest daughters live in a house nearby and two others attend college in Clarksville.
We have been blessed to become grandparents since the arrival of our first grandchild, Ezekiel James!
Our current pet population includes a Beagle named "Dude" and an average-sized, tropical fish aquarium of named pets as well, but I will spare you those details!
My husband Wayne and I have homeschooled our children from kindergarten through high school. We believe that it is a great way to train children spiritually and academically; however, we know that homeschooling is not the only way to teach children!
I hope this About Me page and the rest of this site answers some of your questions concerning how and why we home educate our children.
Home education is a way of life
Since Getting Started...
for our family.
- We have graduated four children from home school high school. One graduated from Vanderbilt University with a double major after receiving an academic scholarship. Another is currently pursuing a degree in Education. Two other home school graduates earned the HOPE scholarship and are attending college, with one daughter completing her high school studies at the age of sixteen
- All our college graduates have graduated with honors
- Three of our daughters have completed an entire novel during the National Novel Writing challenge for several years. Several years ago, they helped their then-eight-year-old sister complete one as well
- One has a growing website and is attending cosmetology school and another one has her own blog
- Our sons have learned to do numerous electrical, plumbing, and home repair jobs for us and receive praises from others for their abilities and work ethics
- One son is very talented with computers and is learning coding and another is following his passion in art via online studies
- The boys also participate in team sports
- Taught in the public schools in NYC for five years before retiring to stay home with our young family
- Was an Independent Study Program (ISP) Coordinator for Straight Arrow Private School in Oceanside, CA, which served home schooling families, for ten years until relocating to TN
- Taught in the Children's Ministry at our church
- Still provide curriculum counseling to moms just getting started and those who need advice along the way
- Enjoy working on this website, writing articles, and submitting comments on blogs
- I also have the privilege of caring for our four-year-old grandson during the day
For the 2013-2014 academic year, I will be educating children in the following grades: 3rd, 6th, 8th, and 10th
I have been home educating our children for twenty-five years now and will continue for another nine years, since our youngest is only nine years old.
Pursuing My Dreams
I have primarily been a stay-at-home mom other than a few brief periods of working outside the home through a temporary agency and as a designer for closets and garage storage solutions from 2008-2010.
Now, I am able to enjoy the best of both of these worlds. I can stay home with our family and earn an income doing what I am most passionate about!
Thank you for taking the time to read my About Me page. On this site I plan to offer quality content resulting from my experience as a homeschool mom of ten children.
