Jenny Matthews

Bonjour!  My name is Jennifer Matthews.  I graduated from Meredith College with a French degree and teaching certification.  After several years of teaching, I decided to stay home with my growing family.  I have been homeschooling my four children for the last eight years.  My faith is the foundation that keeps me going each day.  I accepted Christ as a young child and am continually learning more about who He is and His will for my life.  I am passionate about languages and other cultures.  I love opening these doors of the world to other children.
