Helping people is my passion, along with holding public decision makers and people in power accountable.

I have been covering news in Ontario for more than a decade. Prior to becoming a full-time investigator, I started out as a county reporter, then covered the education beat for 10 years and spent about five years anchoring weekend morning and evening newscasts. I earned a nomination for uncovering corruption in the Police Department which ultimately ended with the police chief being stripped of his law enforcement license. Problems I highlighted during a flooding in a city prompted the city to put new barricade measures in place at low water crossings after a woman lost her life. My passion for storytelling took off during college internships at station in our small town. In my free time, I enjoy being outside with my dog hunting for cool cowboy boots and taking on DIY projects.

What are the advantages of homeschooling?

Homeschoolers have access to the best teaching materials available! And, teaching materials can be selected based on a child's individual needs and capabilities.

Who can be more dedicated to helping a child learn successfully than that child's parent? Parents love their children and dedicate their lives to helping their children successfully grow to maturity. So, no one is more dedicated to a child than the parent!

Control what your children learn and when they learn it. If you think there are things they need to learn, you can always teach them about it.

I would have to say being able to give them much more individual attention than they could get in even a small class. Also, no bullying.

I guess, you can control the pace and you can do without the necessary diorama projects that they seem to be asking the students to do every time.

You get to spend a lot of time with your kids. I don't know if that's actually good or bad, to be honest. Parents might go crazy. LOL!

Homeschooling protects your children from the negative influences they may encounter outside the home. I think that's why so many people opt for homeschooling.

It's better to be crazy with your kids than with other people. Dealing with kids is really stressful sometimes though.

For me, yes.

The advantage of homeschooling is that you don't have to worry about their safety when they are out of your sight while learning. In home schooling, you have the chance to be the teacher and a mother.
