Becky Cooke and her husband Jim homeschooled their three children from kindergarten until college using an eclectic assortment of teaching resources. She enjoys using these same skills to equip parents to successfully teach their children through the high school years and to encourage them to enjoy doing so.
After sending her children off to university, Becky helped develop HSLDA’s Homeschooling Thru High School program including its high school website. She brings a wealth of experience and friendly advice to share with families who are navigating these challenging, yet exciting years. In her “spare” time, she edits books, articles, and magazines for several authors and publishers, is active in Precepts upon Precepts Bible Study, and mentors international collegiate women studying in the Washington, D.C. area. She also serves on the board of Breakthrough Intercessors Prayer Ministry.
The parents of seven children, Alan Hudson and his wife Teresa have been formally homeschooling since 1993 when their eldest was five.
Alan has shared with homeschooling families all over the United States how to create a Christ-centered household, as well as how to encourage and equip children to reach their God-given potential. Having held management positions in engineering, sales, and now marketing, he has also taught goal-setting skills and techniques to achieve success. Combining business trips with family vacations, he has led the Hudson gang across the United States and into Canada, incorporating learning, growth, and fun into each trip.
