Sakinah, Administrator & Finance Coordinator
8th year Homeschooling
Known for spear heading community projects, Sakinah took the lead on establishing the first Islamic based co-op in our South Jersey area. Over the years of teaching her children Sakinah has LEARNED many things. She believes young children should be given time to play, create, and be involved in real-life situations from which they can learn. Also that as parents we need to reshape our minds and invest in ourselves in order to properly guide our children. The foundation of her home education process is reading. Through reading you truly engage your children and awaken their minds. You also teach them to be life long learners. Sakinah recommends reading to your children aloud and have them learn to read books which are well-written, engaging, and invite the reader inside. By teaching through the lives and events of the characters, places and history and not dull academic drills and facts; children become more interested in the learning process. She includes genres such as historical fiction, nature and religious books. Sakinah takes great comfort and confidence in her ability to homeschool her children and continues to be passionate about encouraging mothers to homeschool.
Evana, Public Relations Coordinator
6th Year Homeschooling
Amazingly energetic and social, Evana quickly became the advocate for South Jersey Muslim Homeschoolers. She is a mom of 4 and was a homeschool graduate herself! She is an eclectic soul, who loves reading, makeup, studying to be a doula, and all manner of community service. She started her homeschool journey in 2012 with her son who is now 12. Their journey is different every year and the challenges and benefits change constantly. She homeschools because she wants her kids to have more than textbooks and tests. She wants their vision of their lives and view of the world to be based on real life experiences and relationships. Evana wants her children's education to be a journey, not a mine field.
