ABOUT MARY ACEVEDO
"Parents are the principal and first educators of their children." (CCC 1653)
I am a homeschooling mother of two who is committed to Catholic education and faith formation. I have 8 years of teaching experience in religious education and 24 years of teaching experience in education in general. I enjoy sharing ideas and collaborating with other parent-teachers and educators.
I provide evaluation services for homeschooled children
and teacher training for parent-educators and catechists.
I believe that my career in education has been a calling from God. For most of my career, I have served the poor and vulnerable by helping new immigrants settle, function, and succeed in their new country. I also have had the privilege of working with my husband to form our children into disciples of Christ and responsible, knowledgeable citizens. Now, I would like to be given a chance to coordinate, train, and lead Christian teachers to partner with parents in the religious, moral, and social education of their children.

NAVIGATING THIS SITE
Your homeschooled children need to be evaluated every year. This can be done either by being tested annually or by using an alternative assessment method, normally submitting a portfolio. When you click on the HOMESCHOOL EVALUATOR AND PROCTOR button, you can find out how I can serve your family in those capacities. You can also find links to resources for students and parents. Be sure to check out the gallery and my blog!
