Kim Bedingfield lives in Central Georgia with her husband where she homeschools her five children. Prior to her work as a homeschool mother, she received her BS in Education from University of Georgia and her MS degree in Speech Language Pathology from Vanderbilt University. Her background in child and language development has led her to investigate the strengths and weaknesses of many popular classical homeschool curriculums. Her goal in homeschooling and as a Veritas Press community director is to employ the classical method while engaging children with different learning styles, strengths and weaknesses. She has discovered that the many options offered by Veritas Press provide a rigorous academic experience that enables students to interact in the humanistic culture of our times while maintaining a solid Biblical foundation and worldview.
