Elizabeth has been homeschooling since 1987, when her oldest son came home after 6 weeks of parochial school. 2010 marks Elizabeth's 22nd year of homeschooling. Married to Raymond for 28 years, they have seven children ages 27, 25, 22, 18, 16, 12, and 9.

Presently residing in Wisconsin, they have also lived in Virginia, Tennessee, and various cities in Wisconsin.

Elizabeth received a B.A. from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee in English, with an emphasis in creative writing, which means that she attended lots of poetry classes.

Elizabeth has been published in Faith and Family, mater et magistra, National Catholic Register, Canticle, Lay Witness, , and other Catholic and homeschool publications. She has compiled The Resource Guide for Catholic Home Educators--a booklet that lists various Catholic and other homeschool materials-- and edited a reading list of children's books about the American Revolution entitled Whigs and Tories.

Over the years, she has used a variety of homeschool materials. Her oldest was enrolled in kindergarten and high school 9th and 10th grade with Seton. He then finished 11th and 12th grade with Mother of Divine Grace School. The children are now enrolled in Mother of Divine Grace School, where Elizabeth is also a consultant.

When she began homeschooling, the number of resources available was very limited. Today, the choices can be overwhelming. With the help of this website, she hopes that it will be easier for you to choose the best materials that fit your child's learning style and your teaching style while remaining faithful to the Magisterium of the Church.
