Pennsylvania Homeschoolers Accreditation Agency

Susannah Benson, M.Ed. is a Pennsylvania certified teacher with 14 years of class room experience in the US, Africa and the Middle East and 9 years experience as the homeschooling mother of a Dean's list college student. An evaluator since the enactment of the PA homeschool law I resonate with joy when I consider the marvelous lives homeschooling parents give their children. My firm belief that parents always have their children's best interests at heart and can best introduce their children to the joy of lifetime learning has been reinforced throughout my years of evaluating hundreds of homeschooling families.

The evaluation, a relaxed and enjoyable process of about an hour in length, is held in my home. After reviewing the log and portfolio, offering curriculum and experiential suggestions and information I write a thorough report which is then submitted to the school superintendent. I am happy to answer any questions and soothe the concerns of parents new to homeschooling. Feel free to contact me in advance.

I can be reached by email or telephone 717-464-0963. I will travel to evaluate when necessary. I have spoken on a variety of educational topics to state and local homeschool groups and the Keystone Reading Association and am available as a speaker to your group.
