About Me

I've been teaching my five children at home for over 20 years now and we've been fortunate to be involved in some wonderful school environments.  My two oldest were homeschooled through eighth grade.  They attended Gonzaga High School in Washington DC.  My oldest graduated Salutatorian and is presently at University of Maryland and is active in their campus Christian ministry.  My number two son is also a student at University of Maryland and participates with the campus Christian ministry.   We were extremely blessed to be part of the Gonzaga community as my sons have greatly benefited from their experience at this excellent private school.  My two daughtesr are attending a very good Catholic school and homeschooled through eighth grade also.  They are doing very well.  One is on the honor society. 

My youngest child is currently homeschooled.  We did attend a weekly homeschool co-op one day a week which has been very good for us.  He does not only benefit from classes in History and Science but have established wonderful friendships with other homeschoolers.  I've utilized a local pre-school for four of my children for six hours per week to help establish good social skills because the teachers incorporate good Christian values into their daily routines.  One of the teachers belong to my parish.  This also gave me some needed one on one time homeschooling the older kids. 

Today I am teaching my journal writing classes for first graders and last year I taught kindergarteners.  There have been four boys in my classes each year.  We've had tons of fun.

I highly value homeschooling and know there are numerous benefits to certain classroom situations in which we've been given the opportunity to choose from according to God's plan for our lives.  We have been very blessed to be extremely active in the education of our children.  It is homeschooling which infused a strong faith life into our children and set them on the path towards virtuous pursuits.

"If you wish to profit by the reading of Scripture, then do so with humility, simplicity and faith and never try to acquire a reputation for being a scholar." (The Imitation of Christ by Thomas A. Kempis)

Something to think about: Esteeming oneself lower than others vs. Putting others first.

Where are the poor people? Why do "poor people" wear very expensive clothing in a local community near us? Why did I deliver food to the poor only to find that they were very over-weight individuals? Do the poor in our country have reason to rejoice? Or am I missing something here?

America is a nation that was founded on Christian principles. What do you think of making it a requirement that those entering our country can not be hostile towards Christianity?

Favorite Quote by G.K. Chesterton: "The moment men begin to care more for education than for religion, they begin to care more for ambition than for education. It is no longer a world in which the souls of all are equal before heaven, but a world in which the mind of each is bent on achieving unequal advantage of the other."

Homeschooling can give families the necessary time needed to develop and foster the faith of their children as it immerses the minds of children into the beauty of the present moment which the worldly can often overlook.
