About Me


Welcome to The Canadian Homeschooler. My name is Lisa Marie Fletcher. Like you, I am a homeschooling parent. I have 5 kids, a messy house, and big dreams (without an abundance of free time!) I spend my days teaching kids, playing with little ones, and chipping away at my computer.

When I first started homeschooling my oldest through Kindergarten, I used an American boxed curriculum that came highly recommended to me. It was a good program, but I really wanted to include Canadian resources. That set me on this journey to discover and share what I found with other homeschoolers here in Canada. I hope this site helps you. 

The Mission

To help Canadian homeschooling families connect with each other and also with companies and resources that will help them on their learning journey from start to finish. I want them to find curriculum, materials, and resources that are relevant to them, their experiences, and their history.
