About Kristin McKinnon
Kristin has taught a variety of classes at homeschool co-ops over the last 9 years. She has enjoyed studying languages and after four years of high school Spanish, she spent extended time in Spain and Mexico. Kristin also studied art in college and takes art classes in her spare time whenever she can. She believes everyone has a creative flair and loves to help students discover and develop their artistic talents.
Kristin and her husband, Tom, are grateful to have had the opportunity to homeschool their four children for the past 11 years, mostly using the classical approach. Latin has been taught in their homeschool for six years and she likes to use interactive and classical memory methods in the classroom. When she isn’t teaching or creating, you might find her baking, hiking in the Pacific Northwest, or playing games with her family.
I have had the honor of working with Lisa Nehring over the course of many years, both as a colleague and as an instructor for my middle school child. She is well versed in the teaching of literature, composition, and writing to a variety of ages. Lisa clearly states objectives and offers realistic goals to her students. As a parent and home educator, she offered suggestions and guidance that were attainable and gave me the confidence to guide my child towards success. Lisa has years of experience and insight into a variety of educational strategies and programs. As a fellow educator and homeschooling parent, her expertise and encouragement are top-notch. We have had multiple opportunities to collaborate and for me (and my child) to benefit from her wisdom. Any student or parent who has the opportunity to work with Lisa will benefit and be equipped to move forward in their educational journey.
