Our Homeschool Evaluators
FL law requires homeschool families to do a yearly evaluation. The evaluation has to be conducted by a certified teacher. The following individuals are members of our group, and they have indicated a desire to provide this service to our members.
This list is a courtesy to them and does not constitute a recommendation. You are strongly encouraged to interview any prospective evaluators and to verify certification prior to hiring anyone to conduct an evaluation.

Sheryl Wimer : Sheryl Wimer of Port St. Lucie. She is a previous public school teacher and a homeschool mom of almost 20 years. She hold a Master's Degree in special education and has been conducting homeschool evaluations for over 10 years. Sheryl can provide evaluations to children of any age and grade level, regardless of homeschooling style. In her relaxed manner, Sheryl visits with the student and parent while they look through the child's portfolio together during the annual evaluation, which can take place in either her home or yours, depending on your needs. She provides praise and encouragement as well as offers help and guidance with keeping the portfolio and high school transcripts. She lives in the Midway Road area of North Port St. Lucie and can be reached by phone at 772-408-2244 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kelly Jimenez: My most important role is a wife, to my husband Malachi, and mother to our children, Kaily Rose and Micah. After teaching for 12 years in the public-school system, I retired when our first child was born, but continue to hold a valid teaching certificate, which I use to evaluate homeschoolers. I have a Bachelor of Science in Specific Learning Disabilities. I also have an ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) endorsement. I’ve been homeschooling since 2009. I believe that God has created each child uniquely, with certain strengths and weaknesses, and a specific purpose for his/her life. With that in mind, I will look at your child’s portfolio, listen to any concerns, and try to answer any questions that you may have. My strengths are in behavior management, and I have a passion for discovering each child’s specific learning style and purpose. I live off Midway and Selvitz road and can be reached at email@example.com.
