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.
To verify current certification go to: http://www.fldoe.org/edcert/public.asp
Sheryl Wimer of PSL. She holds a Master’s Degree in Special Education, and has been conducting homeschool evaluations for 1 year. Sheryl, a homeschool mother of three, can provide
evaluations to children of any age, any grade level, regardless of homeschooling style. In
her relaxed manner, Sheryl visits with the student and parent while they all look through
the child’s portfolio together during the annual evaluation, which can take place in either
her home or yours. She provides praise, encouragement, and offers help and guidance
with the keeping of a portfolio, if needed. Sheryl is also able to provide standardized
achievement testing in the home, if requested. She lives in the Midway Road area of
north Port St. Lucie, and can be reached by phone at 871-6140, or by email at
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 protected].
evaluations to students from a broad range of homeschooling styles, including special
needs students. Stacey provides counseling to homeschool parents on subjects such as
keeping high school transcripts, new homeschooler orientation, and keeping a portfolio.
Each year in May, Stacey administers the California Achievement Test/5 to
homeschoolers in the Treasure Coast area. She is also certified through Bob Jones
University, and can provide SAT testing. Evaluations with Stacey are comfortable and
relaxed, usually taking 30-45 minutes. Stacey spends this time looking through the
student’s work and portfolio with the parent and child. She usually uses Worldbook’s
Typical Course of Study, found at www.worldbook.com, as a guide for scope and
sequence, but will use whatever is appropriate for the student. Stacey gives most
evaluations in her home, but can go to the student’s home or to a neutral location, if
needed. You may contact Stacey at home 781-2123, by cell 260-1801, or by email at
