Jennifer Tipton

Jennifer Tipton started homeschooling her children ten years ago when she and her husband decided that the public school system was not the best placement for their developmentally delayed daughter. She has spent those years learning how to teach a non verbal child and how to adapt a lesson plan so that her daughter can learn in the ways that are best for her. That experience taught her that children learn best when allowed to explore a subject at their own pace while being guided gently through the lessons. Her educational goals are to help students to make meaningful connections with the subject material, rather than to rigidly follow guidelines and benchmarks. She studied Art History in college and worked in Early Childhood Education for 17 years before retiring in order to take on the role of full time caretaker as her oldest daughter begins to transition to adulthood. She is an avid gardener and an amateur forager and enjoys knitting whenever she can.
