Karim Morato supports homeschooling parents by serving in HSLDA's educational consulting department. In addition, she reaches out to and collaborates with both English-speaking and Spanish-speaking leaders who are advancing the homeschooling movement.
Karim is originally from Guatemala and emigrated to the United States in 1992. Karim and her husband have been homeschooling their three children for the last 14 years. Their oldest daughter graduated in 2020 and is currently studying industrial engineering; their son graduated this year and is pursuing a finance degree. Besides her homeschooling experience, Karim is a certified Spanish teacher with 16 years of teaching experience in public schools. In 2014, she founded Spanish Educational Solutions with the mission to support homeschool parents, parents who only speak English, and families who want to educate bilingual children.
Karim holds her master’s degree in curriculum and instruction, earned at George Mason University in Virginia. For more than 25 years, she has been teaching and serving the Hispanic community through educational advice, mentoring, and counseling. One of her passions is to equip parents to lead their children's education and advocate for what is best for them. She is convinced that homeschooling can bridge the academic gaps that sometimes exist in the Hispanic community.
At HSLDA, Karim dedicates her time to upholding Hispanic leaders who support homeschooling and Hispanic parents who wish to educate at home. Through her outreach work she offers leaders strategic advice and networking to help them reach and serve the Hispanic community. She also participates in conferences and offers workshops nationally and internationally, sharing her knowledge, experience, and resources. She aims to encourage parents to continue their homeschooling journey and enjoy their children.
Beyond her position at HSLDA, Karim is passionate about cultures, multicultural work, and programs that advance higher education.
