Author, speaker, homeschool mom, attended Illinois State University majoring in Early Childhood Education. In addition to teaching two-, three- and four-year-olds at a developmental preschool in Central Florida, she inspired parents through continuing education seminars, and built upon her teaching skills at national and local conferences. After leaving the classroom, Cheryl became a full-time, stay-at-home mom, where she received the most valuable, hands-on training available. It was during this time that she began her home education journey which spans twenty-four years.

With this book, Cheryl’s many hours of research and experience is right at your fingertips.”
