Jan Zeiger, Homeschool Consultant & Evaluator
Jan recommends an eclectic approach to homeschooling that provides opportunities for hands-on, real-life learning, as well as more traditional educational experiences. The mother of two encourages parents to keep long-term goals for their children in mind when making educational decisions. These goals include a great sense of self, a lifelong love for learning, and a strong academic foundation.
Jan has completed hundreds of portfolio evaluations and has written articles about homeschooling for local and national publications. She has contributed to her local homeschool community through seminars at Spark Family Enrichment Center as well as her work as a "Field Trip Coordinator" and mentor. She has 5 years experience homeschooling her own children and managed several groups during this time. Her oldest child currently attends The Ampersand School in Seminole County, and her youngest has recently returned to homeschooling thanks to the Creative Community School at Spark.
Jan completed her BA and Master's degrees in Elementary Education at the University of Florida and has taught elementary and middle school in Central Florida (in both public and private settings). She has been assisting families who are new to homeschooling as well as more experienced families since 2006. While passionate about personalized learning, Jan is also committed to serving public school students and their families through her work as an educator and future school leader. She recently earned her administrative certification and left the classroom to assist teachers as an instructional coach, a position she is enjoying immensely!
