Faith’s own learning struggles and diagnosis of dyscalculia compelled her compassion for other bright but struggling students. A fifteen year teaching career before she became a homeschool mom included both public and private schools, tutoring, and working as a reading specialist. Her specific area of expertise is the identification and remediation of reading difficulties.
As an extroverted-introvert who is a lifelong learner and an avid reader, her 2008 transition to homeschooling her own two children was a natural one.
Faith currently applies her passionate advocacy for special needs students as she speaks at homeschooling conferences across the nation and internationally. She also serves as a Special Needs Consultant for Home School Legal Defense Association in addition to having her own in-home, private practice as an educational diagnostician.
Faith’s articles have been published in several national homeschooling magazines, and she has been the guest of several homeschooling podcasts.
Faith holds the following credentials:
B.S. in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from West Virginia University
M.Ed. in Reading from Shenandoah University
Certification as a trained dyslexia intervention specialist through the National Institute of Learning Differences (NILD)
Certification in Equipping Minds Cognitive Curriculum
