28 Jun Pate, Michelle
Michelle Pate dreamed of teaching since she was a small child. She is happily married to Craig Pate and they have 4 children and 2 grandchildren. Michelle started homeschooling in 1998. So far, she has successfully graduated 3 of her children and they have gone on to be productive members in society–one of them being a diplomat! Three down, one to go!
Michelle has been teaching various classes for all grade levels at Enrich Christian Homeschool co-op since 1998. She came on board with Homeschool Connections in 2016. Her passion is family! She graduated from Impact Bible Institute in 2013 and has taught and led classes on marriage, parenting, and discipleship.
Michelle especially enjoys working with middle school/high school aged people. She is insistent that learning should be an enjoyable experience. Her out-of-the-box style of teaching encourages students to be engaged and participate. She loves working with art and literature, and has been specializing in history. Grammar and writing skills are honed in with both literature and history classes. She is insistent that doodling is essential and ADHD stands for Attention Differences Having Delightfulness.
You will find her teaching various classes, most of which will be classes that her youngest son will need. Her classes being offered this year are in Art, History, Geography, Literature, Paper Plane and Rubber-band engineering!
