Leslie Hyland, Lead Teacher

Dec 22, 2022 | Faculty, Navigator Team

What an amazing opportunity I have been presented with, to pursue my passion of teaching and to provide support to homeschooling families! Since receiving my education degree at the University of Kentucky, I have had the opportunity to teach in a variety of environments.

I began my teaching career in public elementary schools, splitting 7 years between Georgia and California. When my children were young, I taught in a private preschool. That was also when I began teaching in my Bible study school program, where I still teach weekly. Most recently, I spent 5 years teaching at a homeschool-hybrid while homeschooling my own children.

All of these experiences have made me even more passionate about excellent education that allows for maximum margin for family and faith. They have also allowed me to appreciate the amazing blessing of homeschooling, as well as learn from firsthand experience the hard work that homeschooling demands.

For over 20 years, I have been married to Steve, an adventurous and creative Canadian. I love epic road trips with my family, mountain biking, spending active time with my kids, and cooking. I am the mother of 4 amazing children, all of whom I have been blessed to teach both at home and in classroom settings. I am excited to continue to teach my youngest at home, while supporting the homeschooling families in my area as a face-to-face instructor.
