Hi, I am glad you are here! I am Lisa McAfee, the person behind the name Schoolmarm Ohio. How did I come up with the name? What is a schoolmarm?
I knew from the time I entered college that I wanted to be a teacher. That is exactly what I am and what I have done since I graduated. I love teaching; I love homeschooling; and I love helping other homeschool moms. When deciding a name for my portfolio ministry/business, it was a natural for me since schoolmarm is an old-fashioned term for a teacher.
I am an alumni home educator of two sons and licensed teacher in Ohio. I have over thirty years of teaching experience in private schools, home education programs, cooperatives, and private tutoring. I have been assessing home school students’ work for over 18 years and have enjoyed seeing and reviewing the progress students make from year to year.
If you are in the greater Cincinnati area and would like to schedule a portfolio review appointment please contact me. I can also set up a Skype appointment with you if you are not local. 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.
