Corin Barsily Goodwin founded GHF: Gifted Homeschoolers Forum in 2004 and ran it for 15 years, building it into an international advocacy community with a publishing arm and online classes and a reach of over one million individuals per month. Corin has presented workshops on neurodiversity as well as education and homeschool related issues for many years. Her articles and papers on these topics have been seen in many publications. She is co-author with Mika Gustavson of Making the Choice: When Typical School Doesn’t Work for Your Atypical Child; Writing Your Own Script: A Parents’ Role in the Gifted Child’s Social Development; and a chapter in the textbook, Interplay of Creativity and Giftedness in Science.
Corin has worked in the private and public sectors 'as well as a stint at the White House Office of Science and Technology (back when there was one). She did her undergraduate work at San Francisco State University in Urban Studies and her graduate work at Georgetown University in Public Policy. She is now studying law at Seattle University. In Corin’s free time, she reads almost everything, writes, and plays with longswords. She’s a big fan of Stargate: SG-1, and enjoys science, science fiction, and history – sometimes in the same universe. As a former homeschooler, she believes in lifelong learning. Currently, she lives in the Seattle area with her husband, her own 2e offspring, a perennially startled cat, and a polar bear wearing a dog suit.
