About Lisa

Hi, I am glad you are here! I am Lisa McAfee, the person behind the name Schoolmarm Ohio.  What is a schoolmarm? How did I come up with the name?

I knew from the time I was a junior in high school that I wanted to be a teacher. Teaching is a vital part of who I am, what I enjoy doing since graduating from Miami University. I love homeschooling and have a deep devotion in helping homeschool families. Deciding a name for my homeschool portfolio review business was easy since schoolmarm is an old-fashioned term for teacher.

I am an alumni home educator of two sons and an Ohio licensed teacher. I have over thirty years of teaching experience in private schools, home education programs, cooperatives, and private tutoring. I have been assessing homeschool students’ work since 2000 and have enjoyed seeing and reviewing the progress students make from year to year.

Typically, I meet with you in person, but due to Covid-19 concerns I am meeting with everyone on line via Zoom or phone. My hope is that as you read my blog you will find my posts useful and encouraging for educating your children.

If you are looking for something specific – please direct your attention to the “Categories” section to the right-hand column, or feel free to use the “Search” function. Both are great ways of navigating the resources on this site. If you can’t find quite what you’re looking for, or if you have further questions then leave a comment on either a pertinent post or on this page itself. I would be more than happy to help you.

Thank you for stopping by and reading. You can click on the subscribe tab on the right-hand side of the blog if you’d like to follow along! I would love to help you on your homeschooling journey.

Lisa McAfee   B.S.Elem.Ed.

  1. You go girl!
    I will try to keep up wit your posts, but I AM a homeschool mom with a crazy schedule (if you can call it that),


  2. What a wonderful blog, Lisa! I think it’s valuable to glean as much info. from someone who’s “completed the journey” as possible! Thank you for being a source of inspiration for me through the years!


  3. Medical transcription can be done from home. Of course, some training is needed, but this would be a great part-time job.
    I also know that telephone work such as Viet Nam Vets call me to ask if I have clothes to donate. Market research firms call me to see if I qualify for studies (Various Views, Q-Fact) so perhaps one of these will be a good fit for her.
    Some companies such as heating/air conditioning need telephone dispatchers and I have seen in the paper that you can do this from home.
    Blessings to all of you!
