I am Greer Callender, a home educator since 2013, a mother of 4 sons with dyslexia, and a medical wife. As an Ivy League graduate, I began my home education journey with high ambitions and expectations for my sons but without awareness of their language-based learning differences. In the early days, I did not have adequate support for their educational needs, or a handle on our nontraditional, ever-fluctuating family schedule. I had to learn many strategies through my own tireless research and much trial and error.
I graduated cum laude from Yale University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish and International Studies and began a career as a public health professional. My husband and I lived our dream by moving our young family to Latin America for a time where we worked together in the fields of medicine and public health, while our children enjoyed a rich, bilingual cultural experience abroad.
