Lynne Hartshorn

lynneI am a homeschool mom of 4. Shelby, Shiloh, Heston, and Griffin. I have been married to my husband for 25 years. It has been a blessing to home school all of my children from birth.

I grew up in West Bloomfield Michigan and moved to Colorado in 1982. I graduated from The University of Colorado with a degree in Dental Hygiene. I enjoyed my carreer a great deal but after the birth of my second daughter Shiloh, I moved into my next chapter of my life…home schooling and being a “stay home mom”.

We moved to Sarasota in 1995 and other than missing the beautiful mountains of Colorado and members of my family …. this is home!

I am passionate about home schooling and have been honored to serve the home school community for many years. I served as President of Learning and Families for 2 1/2 years. As president, I had the opportunity to launch many programs for home schoolers such as the home school Expo and the Learning and Families High School and Elementary Co-ops, which I served as Director for 3 years.

I am excited to be among the visionaries for this new opportunity to serve home schoolers in our area. The Bridge is about building relationships and nurturing the hearts of our children while providing the academic excellence that we seek.

I will serve as your Director with love and respect and rise to the calling that has been asked of me.
