     Judith Belew was a Homeschool Mom from 2001-2015. She likes to say she's a retired homeschool parent. Judith was also a THEA volunteer from 2003-present: Area Coordinator for the West TN Home Education chapter for several years then transitioned into the THEA Board Secretary position.

     She was part of forming the Milan Area Homeschoolers support group in the Milan, TN, area.  This group was not a co-op but families that gathered for support and to help with social events like field trips, fun gatherings, and coordinating things like PE or 4H Club for local homeschooling families.

     Amanda Broaddus has a master’s degree in education, with an emphasis on Exceptional Student Education/Educational Therapy.  Additionally, she is a Professionally Certified Educational Therapist, a CERI certified Dyslexia/Structured Literacy Therapist, and a homeschooling mom.   Amanda owns Learning by Design Educational Services, LLC, where she helps struggling students become efficient, effective, lifelong learners.  

      In addition to her role as Educational Therapist, Amanda serves as the dual enrollment coordinator at Johnson University.  As a homeschooling mom, Amanda has a unique perspective in helping homeschooled students choose dual enrollment options that help further their education in high school and college.

     Saralyn was first drawn to Classical Conversations in 2010 because it served as a curriculum spine with a Biblical worldview for all subjects and enabled her to educate her many children.  Although she knew she wanted to homeschool, she felt weak in certain areas. The community time not only strengthened those areas, but the comradery with other parents made homeschooling fun for her and provided positive peer pressure for her children.

     Saralyn’s goal is to equip parents with the tools and confidence to homeschool their children, developing Christian ambassadors who think logically and persuasively in today’s culture. Saralyn lives in beautiful Wears Valley, Tennessee, with her husband Brian, with seven of their ten children still at home.

     Erin Dillinger is a mother of two and has homeschooled her children since the beginning. Her oldest son Michael is twenty-two and just graduated with a full-ride from Lee University. He is working on his graduate degree with a full-ride from the University of Oklahoma. Their daughter Joy has also graduated and is attending Pellissippi State Community College, intending to become a PICU nurse or work in Pediatric Oncology. 

     Erin's goal in homeschooling was to equip her kids with the resources they needed to succeed in life. Homeschooling allowed her to target each area that needed help while not ignoring areas her children thrived. Erin is a great artist, and now that her children have graduated, she teaches art at AMCOG Homeschool coop and intends to start teaching high school classes in the fall of 2023.


Cathy holds a BA from SEU in Church Ministries. Wife to George and a mom to 6 children, Cathy has 19 years of experience in homeschooling. She graduated three of her children while living in NY before she moved to Tennessee last year. Currently, she is homeschooling her other three children, is one of the administrative assistants at Manna Outreach Ministries, and teaches a Biblical Holidays class at a local homeschool co-op.
