“Teachers who love teaching, teach children to love learning.” – Robert John Meehan
I believe that teachers who love teaching AND love learning themselves, teach children to love learning. As a homeschool mother of 4 (ages 7, 9, 13, and 16) my goals are to never stop learning myself and to teach my children to love the process of learning just as much as what they are learning.
I have a bachelor’s degree in computer information systems and worked to earn my alternative teaching certification to transition from the business world to the classroom. As is often the case, God had other plans! My husband and I felt led to homeschool and I have been blessed to use that teaching knowledge with our own children instead of the classroom.
In addition to teaching my own children, I have had the pleasure of teaching at several different local homeschool co-ops for the past 8 years. I enjoy teaching both Literature and History because they spur my love of learning as much as my love of teaching them to students. I can read the same novel or study the same time period hundreds of times and still learn new things! I consider it a personal challenge to find ways to connect with each of my students and find ways to instill that same love of learning in them.
