Meet Heather

I’m on a mission to help families with Out-of-the-Box Teens homeschool high school with peace and confidence.

​Homeschooling four of our own Out-of-the-Box Teens, two of whom graduated and are thriving at their dream ​schools with large scholarships and an Ivy League admission, I want to mentor other families to homeschool differently with purpose and peace.

I went from a public school science educator with a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, Secondary Education, to homeschooling four kids in a project based, relaxed environment.

​If I can leave behind convention and homeschool Out-of-the-Box Teens, meeting them where they are, so can you!

Meet Our Out-of-the-Box Teens

We’ve been homeschooling high school out of the box from the beginning.

Meet our homeschool graduates who set goals in high school and are now living big dreams in college!

Our oldest is a junior Purdue University with the highest merit scholarship and honors school designation.

He was admitted to the School of Liberal Arts for a degree in Professional Writing and he’s thriving with a minor in Anthropology. He dreams of being a technical writer post college.

He also has a chronic illness which provided a plot twist to his story and continues to give us a lot of experience tapping established protocols for unique students.

Our second oldest, was accepted early admission to Cornell University and she is in her third year working toward a Bachelor of Science in Fiber Science and Apparel Design.

She’s now an honors student doing undergraduate research with a minor in art.

From many years of a project based course of study to an Ivy League design program, her story is an exciting one.

Still Not Sure If this Guide is Worth It?

Let Me Tell You the Rest of Rebecca’s Story!

Let tell you my daughter Rebecca’s story.

She’s fulfilling big dream that began when she was young.

Rebecca started sewing when she was 8.

It’s the only activity she ever wanted to do more than once.

Rebecca’s first time at a sewing machine at age 8!

We found ways to explore sewing with her, always pressing into new skills.

As her skills grew, we provided opportunities for her through low and no cost community efforts, websites, and books.

At 10 she began drafting.

At 11 she started attending university runway shows and decided then she wanted to walk the runway as a designer herself.

At 13 she was entering design contests and she started her sewing school.

Her design was featured in a curated collection with known adult designers and design students.

She taught 10 students in 4 sewing classes from age 13-18. The income from her sewing school allowed her to buy new equipment like a serger.

Throughout high school, she took a course we created called Sewing & Design. She had five credits of this course on her transcript when she applied to design school.

She took on the portfolio with research and designs to help children with sensory disorders.

Rebecca’s experiences and accomplishments were rewarded with one of roughly 25 slots in the Fiber Science & Apparel Design at Cornell University.

In design school, she’s thriving!

Rebecca has won art contests, made the dean’s list, designed a head turner for the annual runway show, and secured a research assistant job in the world renowned costume collection. Rebecca also worked in the department’s dye garden and was chosen as the designer for an environmental grant project all in her freshman year!

Now she’s designing six pieces for this year’s runway show as well as other designs for curated shows she applied for.

Just look at that confident look below!

It captures perfectly a dream realized as she walked the runaway with her model at the very show she committed to being a part of 9 years earlier.
