Pennsylvania Homeschoolers Accreditation Agency

Pamela Powles

I have been a homeschooling parent for the past 17 years, and have been conducting elementary and secondary evaluations since 1995. I am also approved to do evaluations and accept credits for the Pennsylvania Homeschoolers Accreditation Agency (PHAA) Diploma Program. I write detailed, personalized evaluations, giving an overview of each student's individual program.

I hold a PA Teaching Certification in French and Spanish, for grades K-12. I have earned two Master of Arts degrees from Middlebury College: one for French in 1983 and one for Spanish in 1991. My undergraduate Bachelor of Arts degree in French is from Eastern University, St. Davids, PA, earned in 1979.

I understand what it is like to be a homeschooling parent, having homeschooled my three children since kindergarten. Two of the three graduated through the PA Homeschoolers Accreditation Agency and have gone on to college. One of these graduated in 2008 and the other is currently a freshman. My third child is in 7th grade, still at home.

I love doing evaluations because it gives me an opportunity to see some of the many different approaches to homeschooling. I am also able to offer encouragement and suggestions from my years of personal experience.
