Homeschool Veteran & Mentor
With a degree in secondary English education, Sonlight was an obvious choice when Sheila DelCharco decided to homeschool her three children. When her oldest asked to go to a small Christian high school, Sheila was concerned about he would transition to the classroom environment. Her fears were laid to rest when she saw his first report card, and even more so when she sat in on a class. He graduated high school with honors and has graduated from the University of Florida in Finance. Her other two children homeschooled through high school and were accepted to the honor's program at the University of North Florida. Sheila is convinced that exposing them to all those books over the years is what led them to this point. Because of her passion for literature-based learning, she is a veteran Sonlight consultant, drawing on her own experience when speaking with families at homeschool conventions for the past 18 years.
Rhonda Helmreich currently teaches high school literature and writing at TNPC, a Home School Cooperative which she co-founded in 1999. Her teaching career began in public schools, where she received awards for innovative literature-based instructional methods. When the time came to homeschool her own five children, she aimed to raise passionate followers of Christ with critical thinking skills and a heart for reaching the world. Sonlight, with its focus on great literature, became her curriculum of choice. Her home-school nest now empty, Rhonda enjoys sharing her teaching insights with others.
Sunny has loved books as long as she can remember. Her own parents discovered Sonlight at a convention and knew the literature and history focus would be perfect for her. She never planned to homeschool her own children past pre-k, but when her daughter learned to read, she was hooked. She has educated both of her children entirely with Sonlight. In her spare time, Sunny enjoys reading (of course), musicals, hiking, and being in or near water.
