Debbie Strayer has been a part of the homeschooling movement since 1988 when she and husband Greg began their journey as homeschoolers. Prior to that time, Debbie received her Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in education. Since joining this wonderful movement that combines the importance of spiritual and educational development, she has many years of experience as an educator, author, speaker, consultant and homeschool evaluator. Her accomplishments include: • Former editor and co-founder of Homeschooling Today™ Magazine • Author, Gaining Confidence to Teach • Editor, The Homeschool Answer Book by Dr. Ruth Beechick • A co-author of the Learning Language Arts through Literature series • Co-author of the Trail Guide to Learning series Debbie is grateful for the friendship and mentoring of Dr. Ruth Beechick, as well as the opportunities she has had to collaborate on The Homeschool Minute, published by The Old Schoolhouse Magazine. Debbie feels that her most important accomplishments are that she has been the wife of Greg Strayer for over 33 years, the mother of homeschool graduates Nate and Ashley and a homeschooling parent for 16 years. She speaks and writes about homeschooling topics with humor, honesty and encouragement. Want Debbie to speak to your group?
