Michelle Morrow – Founder, Curriculum Developer & Member’s Coach
Michelle Morrow is a veteran homeschooler who began homeschooling in 2001, the year her fourth child was born. Michelle and her family live in the Lake Macquarie region of NSW.
Before kids, Michelle worked as a registered Nurse, midwife and nurse educator. After kids, Michelle and her husband became interested in home education and they decided to try it out. There was a lot to learn in those early years but they saw how great it was for their kids. Michelle began using a Charlotte Mason inspired version of homeschooling three years into her homeschool journey.
Her two oldest spent some time in school but her two youngest never went to school. All their children have entered tertiary education at 16 without an HSC or ATAR.
- One is a medical practitioner/doctor.
- Another completed her degree and works overseas studying in her field of expertise.
- Another works as a freelance animator and will finish his Masters of Animation in 2020.
- Another runs her own small business and is studying a Bachelor of Business.
Michelle has been supporting Australian homeschoolers for many years. Her website and blog, Homeschooling Downunder, is listed as a support resources by the NSW Home Education Unit (NESA). She is also a homeschool conference speaker and has appeared on various radio shows and podcasts.
