Welcome to The Parent Roundtable Group!

We can’t wait to meet everyone and get to know you. This group is for Parents to share resources and get to know each other in an online supportive environment.

There are 4 of us that volunteer our time to help this group run; Cali Odom, Wendy Pesile, Melanie Infantino and Katrina Thomas. You may recognize some of those names, they are volunteer teachers and graders for VHSG.

Hello, my name is Cali Odom. I have 4 beautiful children, two that graduated (one just started graduate school), one that is a junior in college, one that is in the workplace and a sophomore in high school still at home. I wanted to start this group as a way to support each other in our homeschooling journey. I can’t wait to meet all of you and see what kind of resources and information our collective knowledge brings for all of us!

I am Wendy, mom of three young adults, two who are in college, and one who is a recent high school graduate working as a part-time UPS supervisor. I am the wife of a military career officer and have homeschooled eighteen plus years. I have taught VHSG grammar and algebra courses. There is a wealth of experience in this group to help you find the methods and materials that work best for your family. Do not hesitate to ask questions and share your experiences with others. Together, we will have answers or be able to point you to helpful resources. I look forward to getting to know and learn from everyone in this group!

We have lived in Ecuador for almost 2 years now – in the central Andes mountains.  My husband spent 25 years as a police officer in Norfolk, Virginia.  He is also an ordained pastor with a heart to serve — so once he retired we moved here to do that.

Katrina Thomas here! Many of you may know me as “the grammar lady” since my main role at VHSG for the past four years has been in teaching, mentoring, and helping build the Fix-It Grammar classes. I love the VHSG students! I am a certified teacher by trade as well as a mom of four (18, 15, 12, and 10). My husband Nathan, a CPA, has also just joined the VHSG family to teach Personal Finance. We live in the gorgeous mountains of Colorado and use every chance possible to get outside!

We look forward to meeting you at our first meeting for the school year on Wednesday October 7th at 1pm CST, this will be an informal get to know you meeting. Our meetings typically happen on Wednesdays during this time, but if we have a guest speaker that needs a different day and time we will accommodate them. Please keep watching the calendar and checking on meeting days and times! As of now our live meetings will occur when we have a moderator to run them, that may not be every Wednesday. Please take some time and explore the VHSG Parent Roundtable Group page and introduce yourself in the Introduction forum. Look around and explore past topics that we can present again and feel free to add to any of the forums with information you have.
