Make Time for Your Children to Explore Their Passions
It's week three already in our series of interviews with our expert staff! This week we are conversing with Carole Cardinal. Carole has been working out of her Québec office as long as she has been homeschooling...forever! She writes articles for HSLDA and translates much of the English content to French and vice versa, and more recently has taken on writing for the Blog and Emails for our French speaking members. Carole has advocated for Québec families and helped them with their school boards and in court. For many years her family was involved with ACPEQ (served on the Board with her husband for a little over 10 years) and three homeschool groups in Québec. We want to heartily thank Carole and Michel and their family for the many, many years of service they have given to HSLDA and the many French-speaking families (in Québec and across Canada), and ACPEQ.

Homeschool and Music Ministry
For week two in our series, we had a chance to speak with Brenda Switzer. Brenda works out of the London office and she is our financial department. Simply put Brenda takes care of all the work surrounding new membership and renewal payments along with all the donations that you so generously give to both HSLDA and CCHE. All orders from the store are lovingly handled by Brenda. She also takes care of little details for the staff like making our morning coffee or purchasing sticky notes and pens, which we are extremely thankful for! Thank you, Brenda, for everything you do. So, let’s get started talking with Brenda.
