About me

I am a Homeschool Evaluator and Encourager

My husband and I began homeschooling our four children in 1988 and retired when our youngest child graduated from high school at home in 2010. We did not retire from supporting homeschool families or from sharing a vision for homeschooling free of all unnecessary paperwork and requirements.

I have served the homeschool community by providing evaluations in northeast Pennsylvania since 2009. Based on other qualifications (see explanation below), I am currently approved to evaluate at the elementary and secondary levels in the following districts:

  • Abington Heights
  • Dunmore
  • Elk Lake
  • Hanover
  • Lackawanna Trail
  • Lakeland
  • Mid Valley
  • Mountain View
  • North Pocono
  • Old Forge
  • Pittston Area
  • Scranton
  • Tunkhannock
  • Valley View
  • Wallenpaupack Area
  • Western Wayne

I evaluate based on other qualifications:

I don’t have a teaching credential, but I do have a B.A. and 22 years of homeschool experience. If you would like me to provide your homeschool evaluation, but your district is not listed above, I can provide a copy of my bachelor of arts degree and a letter that you can personalize and use to request that your district allow me to evaluate your family.

From the PA Home Education law:

The evaluation shall also be based on an interview of the child and a review of the portfolio required in clause (1) and shall certify whether or not an appropriate education is occurring. At the request of the supervisor, persons with other qualifications may conduct the evaluation with the prior consent of the district of residence superintendent.
