Hi there! My name is Melanie Bergner, creator of Your Homeschool Helper.  I’m also a parent like you.  I have a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, minor in Reading Instruction, and a Kindergarten endorsement.  Although I am a teacher by trade, it is my desire to show parents that they have the ability to homeschool their children and give them the best education possible without a 4-year degree!  I’ve been working for more than 30 years through a combination of college, student teaching, subbing, public school teaching, mothering, and teaching in our own homeschool, and I have so much to share.  I have gathered everything I can into this course to instruct others quickly and straightforwardly so they can get to the business of teaching their own child!

Over the past 20 years of raising kids, I have successfully learned how to
   • Homeschool multiple-aged children
   • Juggle teaching with babies    
     and toddlers
   • Find a way to clean the house,        
     make the meals, and do laundry
   • Make it to those doctor and      
     dentist appointments
All while finding time to homeschool our children.

I’d love the chance to help you do the same!

My husband David and I have been married for 23 years and we have 5 children. We enjoy baking, hiking, working out, and spending time together as a family. Homeschooling has been a natural extension of who we are as parents
   • Being present in their lives
   • Overseeing their education
   • Building on their strengths
   • Working on their challenges

I believe our family is BETTER because of homeschooling.
