WPA Board of Directors
President – Jodi Buntin –Jodi strongly believes in homeschooling and preserving the right and freedom for all families in Wisconsin to homeschool according to their own beliefs and convictions. She and her husband have homeschooled their two sons since the beginning, and are grateful for the homeschooling pioneers who paved the way.
Treasurer – Mary Sue Slifer – Mary Sue and her family decided to homeschool when her son was just two years old. Their seven (plus) “school years” journey has been a blessing, with 2016/17 being the first year homeschooling as a single parent. Mary Sue’s involvement with WPA started on the Conference Committee in 2012 and shortly thereafter with the Board. Mary Sue feels that spending time with the families of WPA has influenced her family in tremendously valuable ways.
Secretary – Jennifer Grasse – Jennifer and her husband, Brett, live in Milwaukee and have four entirely homeschooled children. She and her family have been inspired by WPA conferences for decades and are so grateful for the work WPA has done to preserve the homeschooling freedoms of Wisconsin families.
Beth Kaseman-Wold – Beth started homeschooling in 1979 and never looked back. By 1984 she was helping organize the first WPA conference. She has been volunteering with WPA ever since to help protect the rights of all Wisconsin families to homeschool in line with their values and beliefs. She and her husband homeschool their two daughters.
Question Answering Committee Coordinator – Colleen Manning – Colleen lives in the hilly, southwest corner of Wisconsin with her husband, Ron. They home-educated six children from birth to high school graduation. Colleen has supported local homeschool families since 1999. In 2015 she began volunteering with WPA because she wanted to work together with other to protect homeschooling freedoms in Wisconsin.
Legislative Watch – Rebecca Ahl – Rebecca and her husband homeschool their two children, near the city of Madison. Both kids have been homeschooled in Wisconsin since they were old enough to legally do so, and their family is grateful to exercise the right to live such interesting and joyful lives. The family has been very active with their local homeschool group, and has volunteered together for past WPA conferences. Rebecca is excited to join the board and help keep the Wisconsin homeschooling law strong and effective for all families.
