Jennifer Carpenter graduated summa cum laude from the University of Maryland and is a current graduate student in history at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. Jennifer discovered her love for history while homeschooling her two children, and for the past two years, she has shared her passion with Ms. Georgia’s homeschool co-op program. Her philosophy is that history is not just a dry series of dates and important people, but a rich tradition that evolved to create who we are today as a people and a culture. Understanding that tradition and how it relates to ourselves is one of the great challenges of teaching history in today’s world, and one that Jennifer wholeheartedly accepts.
