Hi! My name is Jana Sheridan, and I'm here to help you homeschool your children like a pro. Let me share my story with you. It all started when I was a freshman in college... I took a sociology class called "Marriage and Family Studies" and our wonderful old professor, Dr. Claiborne, said we were to write a 10-page term paper. (Now this was before the internet existed, back in the day of the typewriter, y'all, - back when a 10-page paper was hard work!) When we asked him what the topic should be, he said, "something pertaining to marriage,... or family." UGH! No help at all.


About two weeks later, I heard someone use the term "homeschooling" for the first time. I asked what it meant and my immediate reaction was, "that's the dumbest idea I've heard in a long time." I decided to write my paper on just how "not good" homeschooling would be. I checked out every book the college library had that made any mention of homeschooling; I could barely carry the stack. That night, I read every reference I could find and I knew I was in trouble. I could not find one negative word about it! Every reference spoke of the benefits and the favorable outcomes. With no time to find another topic, I had no choice but to write a 10-page paper about why homeschooling is GOOD idea! By the end of the term, I had an A+ on my paper for Marriage and Family Studies, and a firm conviction that I had to homeschool my own children one day.


Over the next three decades, I did homeschool my children, k - 12. I found out the military is not necessarily the toughest job you'll ever love. I did love having my children by my side, though, and I honestly would go back and do it all again in a heartbeat. Just show me the DeLorean and I'm there, Mr. Fusion and all...


I also got a degree in middle school education. I wrote a newspaper column on parenting and children's health. I was president of a terrific homeschool support group with over 100 member families. Everyone pitched in and we were able to have sports teams, co-op classes, graduation ceremonies, field trips, theatrical productions, and summer picnics. It was wonderful! When my children went off to college, I was blessed with a job as principal/administrator of a private Christian school and that was an amazing experience I will never forget. 


In these various roles, I've had the opportunity to work with all kinds of teachers, all kinds of students, and all kinds parents with all kinds of problems! I've always had a passion for helping others and a love for children and families. Now, in this time of transition and difficulty, I am moved to help families who want to homeschool. That's why I'm here. I want to be sure that every Mom or Dad - or Grandparent - who wants to homeschool has the support they need to do so excellently.
