Tj was homeschooled starting in the second grade through high school graduation. For much of that time, his family served as missionaries in Haiti.
He earned his juris doctor from Oak Brook College of Law while serving as a legal assistant at HSLDA. Now, as an HSLDA Staff Attorney, Tj assists members across the country with legal questions and challenges to their homeschool freedom.
Tj and his wife, Susan, homeschool their seven children: Josiah, Suzanna, Ella, Makenna, Jonah, Annika, and Ezra.
Homeschooling is about freedom and we must protect private home education in Oregon in order to preserve those freedoms. In the first video below, learn from HSLDA’s Oregon representative about this important topic. In the second video, he joins Faith Berens in discussing homeschooling special needs.
