I am a licensed elementary teacher in Kansas, where I taught 2nd grade in a public school classroom and worked as a virtual school educator. For the last 15 years, I have homeschooled my own 6 children from preschool through high school!
I embrace an eclectic homeschooling approach! I use a mix of philosophies, including: Classical, Charlotte Mason, Montessori, and Interest-Led Learning! I spend much of my time focused on Math, Reading, and Writing--while often using unit studies and project based learning to incorporate other subjects.
I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Emporia State University.

I'm a homeschool mom of 6 (with kids ranging from preschool to college)! I love helping and supporting other parents educate their children at home! I write about homeschooling, life, and parenting on my blog: jenmerckling.com
