Pennsylvania Homeschoolers Accreditation Agency

Pamela Powles

I recently moved out to beautiful Lancaster County from the city of Philadelphia, when my husband retired the end of December 2018 after 40 years in the pastorate. I hold a PA Teaching Certificate in French and Spanish for grades K-12. I have earned two Master of Arts degrees from Middlebury College, Middlebury, VT: 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 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 in-depth summary of each student's individual homeschool program.

I understand what it is like to be a homeschooler. I was a homeschooling parent for 24 years, having homeschooled my three children from kindergarten through high school. All three of my children graduated through the PA Homeschoolers Accreditation Agency and subsequently went on to graduate from college. I have also taught French and Spanish classes to homeschooled students since 1998.

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. I am always excited to find new homeschool families to work with, and would welcome the chance to talk to you about your homeschooling needs.
