We believe in empowered parents. 
Parents are the natural and rightful authority to guide their children.

We believe in parents' rights to direct their children's education.
Homeschooling is the ultimate application of parental engagement and parents directing their children's education.

We believe in the power of community.
When people of like-mind come together, great things happen. Granite State Home Educators strives to help make these connections and to represent this vision to the broader NH community.

Our Story

Granite State Home Educators is a 501c4, all-volunteer statewide grassroots organization created to support and empower parents who wish to actively direct their children's education through homeschooling. Our leadership team includes Erica Layon, Kathryn Michelotti, Janet Ellis, Amanda Weeden, Lauren Lawless, and Michelle Levell. They bring significant homeschool experience and advocacy to benefit our group and members.

Membership is free and open to all including prospective, current, and retired home educators. Join by subscribing to our monthly e-newsletters or joining any of our various social media groups.

GSHE is committed to being accessible to families. We can always be reached at info@granitestatehomeeducators, or through any of our social media platforms.
