Sonlight Mentor
Christie first encountered Sonlight Curriculum in 1997 when she was teaching the children of another family overseas. As a former classroom teacher, she was so impressed with the curriculum that in 2009 she made it her choice for educating her four sons. She and her husband have been married for twenty years and have been homeschooling with Sonlight for the past 12. They have utilized Sonlight programs from preschool to high school. Through the years they have enjoyed watching each of their boys develop a variety of interests and strengths based on their unique personalities and their learning with Sonlight. This year they will have a middle schooler and two high schoolers. Their oldest son graduated in May and is heading off for college this fall. Christie enjoys meeting and encouraging homeschooling families and helping them find solutions for the homeschool journey!
