Welcome to Ms. Jennifer's Class!

Get To Know The Tobler Family!

I was so very happy to see everyone again ... and meet new friends! ... on Friday night at orientation! I just know this is going to be a fantastic year! I am very much looking forward to partnering with you on this journey to educate our children to Know Him and Make Him Known! As we go along through this year, I am excited to get to know you all better. But I'd like to get this party started by sharing a little more about myself and my family.

My husband, Jamie, and I have been married for almost 10 years. He is the Outreach Pastor at our church, Living Word Family Church. I am a full-time homeschool mama, but I am also a doula. Charlotte is our oldest, she just turned 7, and she is our shy performer. James is 4 (and a half!) and he is our little evangelist/politician (he has never met a stranger!). Emily will be 3 in a couple of weeks, and she is our sassy funny girl. Ian is our newest addition, and he is all smiles and giggles. Jamie and I love to travel and have traveled to many places all over the world. We've done domestic missions trips with our kids, but we can't wait until they're old enough to travel internationally with us!

What Will Class Be Like?

I know a good number of your questions were answered during our orientation, but I wanted to tell you a little bit about what class will look like each week. I will introduce our new grammar (material) in a variety of memorization techniques. I highly encourage you to bring your Foundations Guide with you to class and take notes -- what tune we used for Science, or what hand motions went with the Timeline Song. As a parent last year, I spent too much time trying to re-invent the wheel, or simply just trying to remember what the tune was that the tutor used. If I had only thought to bring my Foundations Guide and a pack of sticky notes! The other tutors and I have collaborated to make sure that siblings in different classes are learning the same memorization tool for the various subjects.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me, all my information is below. I am looking forward to an incredible year, and I'm so happy we're on this journey together!
