NANCY MANOS and her husband, James, homeschooled their two daughters all the way through high school. The Manos’ home education journey was a rich, rewarding, and sometimes challenging experience. Nancy is passionate about encouraging others in the homeschool adventure. Her heart is to share the joy of homeschooling, to share practical ideas, and to remind parents that with God’s help they can do this great work of educating their children at home. Nancy and James served together on the board of directors of Arizona Families for Home Education (AFHE) for 13 years. Nancy continues serving the Arizona homeschool community as the Executive Director of AFHE. When she isn’t busy running the day-to-day operations of the organization, planning events like the statewide homeschool convention, training volunteers, publishing the magazine, writing articles, and speaking to homeschool groups, Nancy loves spending time with her family. Her favorite role is grandma to their first grandchild, an adorable toddler who brings joy and heaping amounts of fun to each day through his delightful antics and zest for life.
