Instructor: Kathleen Duncan is a homeschool teacher with over nine years' experience. She was homeschooled herself from kindergarten all the way through twelfth grade and truly loved it. Kathleen attended California State University Fullerton, earning a bachelor's degree magna cum laude. Her initial plan was to teach public high school, but by then she was already working with homeschoolers and was hooked. She now works with students of all ages and in nearly every subject, both one on one and in class settings.
