My experience includes a 20-year career in K-College academics and administration where I worked and taught at literally every level of education in a professional capacity – with diverse student populations ranging from gifted to those with learning differences. After starting my career as a classroom teacher, I found great success as a private tutor, which then evolved into becoming an educational consultant for kids of the “rich and famous” in Los Angeles. There I worked alongside my husband at our private learning center. I came to realize the system is broken and failing its students, even those from families who can “afford it all.” When I had my own children, I knew what I had to do: homeschool. I spend my days educating my four “endlessly entertaining” kids in Colorado with Scott, my husband of 20+ years. I take great pleasure in devouring non-fiction, cooking with my kids, and pondering all things education. You can find me on my two favorite playgrounds, Tik Tok and HomeschoolAwakening.com.

Mike is a life-long learner, a tendency that accelerated after he and his wife started homeschooling their children.  Both engineers, it wasn’t enough to simply homeschool.  They studied the various homeschool philosophies to understand what would work best for their family.   In homeschooling, they realized that they were “redeeming their education” – learning all the things they were supposed to have been taught in the school system.  Their experience illustrated some of the shortcomings of public education.  15 years later, the first two of their five children have graduated from high school and have earned scholarships at a private university.  

Mike is thrilled to have the chance to help families enrich their lives by homeschooling.  With Homeschool Awakening, Mike has been the primary author of the guides and scripts for the courses.  Mike also developed the unique H.E.A.R.T. diagnostic which provides tailored curriculum recommendations and teaching tips based on family lifestyle and personality profiles.

Mike and his family enjoy the Colorado outdoors when they’re not reading literature together or enmeshed in a philosophical debate.
