Hello! I am an Indiana resident and able to answer questions specific to my state. I also utilize computers (both canned programs and internet) extensively, and the learning opportunities available in field trips.

Experience in the area

I am currently educating my school age children, and helping others in my community do the same. One has already graduated and is in college.


I am a former member of the South West Indiana Home Educators steering committee, and a member of the Indiana Association of Home Educators.


I have a BS from the University of Evansville, extensive specialty post-secondary training in my vocation and 14 years of on-the-job training. (I also teach at a local college.)
