Hi there! I’m Kandis Babel the founder of Smart Simple Homeschool. I’m a wife and mom of four. I also happen to be an educator. My parents and younger brother will tell you that they knew I was going to be a teacher from the time I was in preschool but that story is for another day. What they didn’t know at the time was how learning and teaching well would become a passion of mine. I hold a master’s degree in education with a focus in curriculum and teacher leadership. While teaching, I was known for being rather unconventional and often times down right different. My students and their parents loved me for it. After leaving the public school classroom to stay home with our children, I realized how complicated education in schools or at home had become. Did it have to be that way? I didn’t think so. I’ve made it my mission to help families find ways to educate their children the smart and simple way.
