When Pam Dowling is not busy with CHN, dabbling in bookkeeping, she is teaching beginning sewing to homeschoolers! She finds it very rewarding and at times very entertaining. The things kids say!

She started her homeschooling journey in 2002 and now her son will be graduating college this June, has a driver’s license and is employed! They do make it. Homeschooling, like parenting isn’t something you do, it’s something you experience. She wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.She's grateful to have the opportunity to stay connected to this wonderful community through her teaching and serving on the CHN board of Trustees. CHN provides her with speaking opportunities that she never thought would be something she would immensely enjoy. Given that public speaking is supposed to be people’s number one fear. But, after she spoke for over two hours at the 2014 Expo and had a dad come up to her after and tell her that he didn’t think they could homeschool their child. They were afraid since they lived across the street from the school, but now they knew what their rights were and they knew they could do it! Then he asked if he could hug her. She was hooked. It’s the most rewarding part of volunteering for her.Helping to produce Expo is also very rewarding. Expo brings so much to homeschooling families, new and experienced.She is very proud to serve on the CHN Board of Trustee and help CHN fulfill its mission statement.
