H.E.A.R.T. (Ocala)

www.aheart4homeschooling.com

H.E.R.I. - Home Education Resources & Information (JAX)

H.E.R.I. is a volunteer organization, of almost 800 families serving homeschoolers in the northeast Florida region. Essentially, we are a support group of other smaller support groups, home-based private schools and individuals, and as such offer unlimited opportunities for serving and encouraging one another.

Home Education Resources and Information, better known as H.E.R.I. (hurry) was established in 1985 to provide support and communication between homeschoolers. Soon after the homeschool law was enacted H.E.R.I. provided support to home schoolers registering with the superintendent’s office, as well as those registering with 600 schools (non-traditional private schools).

H.E.R.I. began with the HOME FORUM, its bi-monthly E-newsletter, which provided a vehicle for communication between homeschoolers. Other services were added as volunteers surfaced and needs became evident.

H.E.R.I. is a non-profit corporation organized for all homeschoolers regardless of race, creed or other homeschooling alliances. H.E.R.I. is NOT a school, or in any way a legal covering for homeschoolers. Information is provided, but homeschooling parents bear the ultimate responsibility for establishing their homeschool programs within the boundaries of the law. All parents considering homeschooling should thoroughly research and read all guidelines and laws before beginning.

Williston Christian Homeschoolers
Sherri Brice saddleupsb7@yahoo.com

Hello,

My name is Sherri Brice and I live in Levy County and I am an experienced home-school evaluator. I worked For Palm Beach County School Board for almost 10 years and have experience with administering standardize tests. Andy and I have been married for 22 years and are blessed with four girls. We attend Living Water Life Center in Morriston, FL and I am currently homeschooling our 4 girls using Apologia, Math-u-see, FLVS, and other items.

Ten years ago, after meeting several parents in our county with no group support, I felt God had called me to start a home school support group. Our group is called the Williston Christian Homeschoolers and we meet at various places throughout the year. ( parks, member's home, and springs). Our meetings are held on the 1st week of each month. These past years have been filled with meeting many new friends and exciting field trips.

If you are interested in our group or have any questions please call 352-486-4377

I conduct home-school evaluations year round. Please feel free to call for an appointment.

God Bless!
Sherri
