Our teachers love homeschooling! Whether motivated by their own homeschooling experiences, their belief in the possibilities and potential of distance learning, or their desire to support families from around the world, our teachers enjoy their work so much that a number of them have been with Oak Meadow for well over ten years.
Our teachers also walk the talk. Take Claudine Kaplan, for example. Besides teaching K-8 students with Oak Meadow, Claudine is founder of the aptly-named Pond Side Classroom, a supplementary program for homeschooling children that she runs out of her pond side home in New Hampshire. And there’s Leslie Daniels. In addition to working as an Oak Meadow teacher since 1986, she’s the founder, director and head teacher of the “Little Tree Education” program, which offers educational activities to groups of homeschooled students. Her whole professional life has centered around guiding children toward the joy of discovery.
