My Story

My name is Arlene Gunter and I am the founder of My Own Home School. I have been working in and around schools my entire life: in school fundraising, on-line personal training, publishing; offering book fairs to schools and most recently selling books directly to schools working with a book reseller.


Along the way, I have become passionate about reading. Reading is a “life skill”. Learning how to read effectively is the foundation of a strong education and the future of every generation. Sadly, some students struggle to become proficient in reading. This is what brought me to home schooling. I have 8 grandchildren, half are in traditional school and the other half are home schooled by very apt parents. What I learned is both can be equally effective, given the desires and needs of the family. This new awareness in the last 5 years has helped me recognize the incredible power in home schooling. I believe home schooling is a more than viable option and, with the proper support and resources, students can learn very effectively.


These days, I personally participate in some of the home schooling of my grandchildren with extremely fulfilling results that benefit my grands and myself. Grandparents often look for opportunities to volunteer in meaningful ways. Home Schooling is my way of doing just that. I am so dedicated to this effort. That is the point of My Own Home I want to help others who are interested in Home schooling, for whatever personal family reasons they have.


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
