Hello! I'm Jamie.

I’m so thrilled that you’re here! I’m a homeschool mother of 4 children ranging from 4-13 years old, and I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education.

I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. When I was little I would create elaborate “summer school” plans for my younger sisters. We’d hold our school in the hot, dusty playhouse with a fan rigged up to an extra-long extension cord. It went pretty well for the first few days, until my sisters found  spiders in the playhouse. We moved our school to the basement after that. I didn’t know then that someday I’d be a full time educator in my very own home.

I’ve come a long way since those playhouse days, but my passion has only grown stronger. Today my goal is to inspire my children to love learning and more than anything, I want to love learning right along beside them! Thus, for me, homeschooling is more than just a duty or something to check off the list each day — homeschooling is a lifestyle.  And it’s something to be enjoyed.

My greatest delight is walking beside my children in their learning adventure. And I would love to walk beside you in yours.

I’ve created the Homeschool Haven as a gathering place to find answers, support, & a hefty dose of hope! Homeschooling can feel overwhelming at times — but we don’t have to do it alone! I’ll be here beside you every step of the way so you can THRIVE while homeschooling!
