Jacquelyn Makinen

I am a homeschooling mother of 7 children (5 boys and 2 girls) who began the journey in 2001; I was introduced to IEW materials in 2006. After using the materials for a decade, I felt confident enough to apply for accreditation and use the methods to teach students outside of my immediate family. Watching students blossom in their writing has been a joy to experience. Consequently, students have developed friendships with each other that have flourished outside of "the classroom." With a little modeling and a lot of encouragement, IEW methodology proves that anyone can learn to write well.
