Welcome to Happy Hive Homeschool Consulting! Do you want to Homeschool in California but you have no idea where to start? Perhaps there is a voice in your head (or relatives and friends) telling you you will turn your children into some sort of 3 headed monsters… I’m here to help! You CAN home school.
No teaching credential or experience required! God gave you 100% of the tools you needed the day he made you a parent, I promise.  A community helps, and I would love to be a part of that community.


I homeschool(ed) my 3 children. My oldest daughters were homeschooled
until they were a sophomore (now college freshman) and a junior in  high school
(now college sophomore).

Then they choose to attend “regular” school- it was the right decision for them!

My Son is currently a homeschooled high school senior, class of 2021.

Homeschooling gives my son a lot of flexibility now that he is older. Here he is actually visiting my classroom and working on an iPad while enjoying treats from the teacher’s lounge!

  Whatever journey you are on, I can help.

Homeschooling from the beginning or, if you want to remove your children from a public, private, or charter school, and homeschool moving forward.  (Check out what others have to say HERE)

I have over 20 years experience as an educator in California working in private schools, public schools and homeschooling my own children. I even found a way to homeschool when I had to return to work full time. I have guided many families over the years to establish their family homeschool or by enrolling them in our PSP. I believe the relationships with our children are our most precious gift, and through homeschooling we nurture the bond we were blessed with at birth.  There is no right or wrong way to home educate, there is only your way – what works best for you. At Happy Hive Homeschool Consulting I seek to help you explore your inner goals and the workings of your children and family to find what works best for YOU! 

I look forward to the adventures that await and getting to know you and your children!
