Meet Our Mentors
We are so glad you are here and hope you are ready to enjoy one-on-one personal attention from a dedicated mentor who will listen to your needs and help you identify action steps!
Every woman on this list is encouraging and knowledgeable about homeschooling! Even though they don't know every answer, they are the type of women who will point you in the right direction!
Keep in mind, you'll probably have a more fruitful experience with a mentor if you choose a mama with a similar number of kids as you and a similar homeschooling philosophy and/or experience. I am pleased to introduce to you...
Amy L, Texas
Amy is a mom of 5 kids, from preschool to high school. She grew up in a big family in the midwest and experienced public school, private school, and homeschool before heading off to college. She has a liberal arts degree in Education, with a concentration in History. Those studies continue to inspire Amy to create & organize unit studies and curriculum, and find connections among various subject areas.
Amy leans toward classical, eclectic style homeschooling. Over the years, she has used bits and pieces of Catholic Heritage Curriculum, Seton, Classically Catholic Memory, Mother of Divine Grace, Singapore Math, Memoria Press, and others. She loves finding ways to make curriculum fit their life - however crazy it may be from year to year!
Amy is a teacher-turned-homeschooler, who never expected to educate her children at home, but has loved the freedom and flexibility it has given her family over the past 10+ years. She loves saint stories, good chocolate, and (almost) everything Italian.
Amy is generally available for consults Monday-Saturday evenings and late afternoons on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

Jenny B, Texas
Howdy! I have been homeschooling my four children, ages 7-17, who have been homeschooled all their lives for over 13 years. My homeschool philosophy is "whatever works" with a smattering of literature-based learning, Charlotte Mason, and Classical elements, so I love helping fellow Catholic homeschooling mamas figure out what will work for them!
Over the years, I have dabbled in Catholic Heritage Curricula, Catholic Schoolhouse, Classically Catholic Memory, Mater Amabilis, Mother of Divine Grace, Homeschool Connections, and more! I have some experience with homeschooling a child with special needs, as a working mom, and as a military spouse. My greatest strength as a homeschooling mom is definitely my organizational skills. My greatest challenge is being consistent, as I get bored easily.
Jenny is generally available for consults on Monday, Thursday, and Friday afternoons.

Margaret R, Texas
I have been homeschooling since 2006. I used an “eclectic” approach in the early grades, moved to enrollment in Seton for a few years, and ultimately moved to enrollment in Mother of Divine Grace school since 2012. I have 2 daughters, my eldest graduated from MODG in 2018 and is currently a junior studying Biomedical Science at Texas A&M and my younger daughter is currently a junior in high school.
I have been involved in our local homeschool community in various ways over the years. I have taught several classes at our parish homeschool co-op ranging from kindergarten to high school mathematics. I have also served as co-op director. I was a co-founder and director of the San Antonio Catholic Homeschool Conference from 2012-2016. I also manage a facebook page for Catholic homeschooling families in the San Antonio area.
I believe the best approach to homeschooling is the one that works best for YOUR family. This can even extend to “tweaking” and customizing an enrolled curriculum to meet your family’s or a particular child’s needs. This can range from co-op classes, an alternate source for a particular subject, online classes or dual credit for high schoolers.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics, so I love to teach and talk about Math programs/approaches to learning Math. I am also an Air Force veteran and my husband retired from the Air Force in 2011, so I understand the unique concerns of military families. I am active in my parish and serve as the Troop Coordinator for our American Heritage Girls troop.
Margaret's availability is coming soon!
Stacie F, Kansas
Stacie is a Catholic, Army wife, and proud homeschooling mother of kids ages 1 to 13. Stacie graduated from the University of Texas-Pan American (now known as University of Texas-Rio Grande Valley) with a Bachelor of General Studies, with the areas of concentration in history, english, political science, and a minor in economics. Although she began her M.Ed at Campbell University in North Carolina, the vocation of motherhood took full precedence in her life and she decided simply that she'd rather teach her own kids at home than someone else's.
Stacie's homeschooling journey includes experience in the following, Catholic Heritage Curricula, Mother of Divine Grace, Institute for Excellence in Writing, Barton Reading and Spelling, Math U See, and others.
Stacie's hobbies include reading, researching curriculum, learning everything she can about dyslexia (to help her dyslexic kids), and nurturing her "very healthy obsessions" which include Snoopy, Dr. Pepper, Anne of Green Gables, planners, cheesy romantic movies, Whataburger, St. Edith Stein, there are too many to name.
Stacie is generally available for consults on Sunday, Monday, and Friday late afternoons; Monday and Friday evenings; and daytime on Saturdays.

Tammye B, Indiana
Hi, my name is Tammye! My husband and I have been married for 22 years. We have been blessed with 8 beautiful children and a silly Bull Mastiff named Thor, our gentle giant. I have a BS in Educational Studies and I have 20 plus years in education. I have worked as a Substitute Teacher, Preschool Teacher, Assistant Director of a childcare facility, and Director/Owner of a Preschool. After having our 4th child we decided I would take on a new role as a SAHM. That was 10 years ago!
This year marks our 7th year homeschooling! I will be schooling grades K, 2, 5, 8, and a preschooler. Over the years we have used several curricula, Catholic Heritage, RC History, Mater Amabilis, Catholic Schoolhouse all under the guidance of books such as The Well Trained Mind by Susan Wise Bauer, Designing Your Own Classical Curriculum by Laura Berquist, and Real Learning by Elizabeth Foss. This year we settled in with Mother of Divine Grace fully enrolled. Next year will be our first experience with highschool!
Homeschooling has truly become a passion for me. I have loved watching the fruits of homeschooling permeate our family through our children. Homeschooling has been the catalyst that has allowed us to really live the liturgy fully. With each year my devotion to Mary grows as I see her “Yes” help my children grow in virtue and love through their education.
Tammye is generally available for consults on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Wednesday afternoons
