Pennsylvania Homeschoolers Accreditation Agency

Kathleen Orient

I am a retired public school teacher of 36 years and have completed home school evaluations since the year, 2000. I have tutored students of all grades in different subjects and have been part of home bound instruction throughout my teaching career.

I enjoy being part of students learning, helping to design curriculum for students, and providing suggestions for developing different forms of assessments to be part of the studentsí evaluations.

My teaching background includes elementary (K-8), music education and gifted education (KĖ12). Teaching classes for gifted students, working with classroom teachers in Fox Chapel Area School District, and resource teachers from North Hills School Districts provided me with experiences with all levels (KĖ12) and all subjects.

My home school evaluation evolves around the individual needs of the student. Visits to the home throughout the school year provide: time to understand the studentís program, opportunities to support the student and parents, and personal knowledge of the studentís performance that becomes part of the studentís evaluation.

I am available to travel and complete evaluations in Allegheny, Beaver, Butler, Clarion, Crawford, Erie, Lawrence, Mercer and Venango counties.
