I believe that it is important to learn how to learn and not just learn facts. I think children should be able to learn at their own pace and in their own time, which is why I chose to homeschool my children. I love being able to allow my daughters to pursue their interests and learn through living books and life experiences.
I live on a hobby farm in the Upstate of SC and have been homeschooling my daughters for 12 years. Family is very important to me, and I cherish the opportunity to spend each day learning together. I am thankful for being blessed with an amazingly supportive husband who has lovingly encouraged me throughout my family's homeschool journey.
I am a graduate of Clemson University, and I have a SC teaching certificate in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Middle School Math. Prior to becoming a mom, I taught middle school math in the Upstate of SC. I have worked in several learning centers and was also an SAT test facilitator.
My goal as director of TSCHAA is to provide outstanding service and support to all members throughout their homeschool journey. Please let me know if I can assist you in any way.
