    About the Author

    cathyduffy To understand how to use Cathy Duffy’s Curriculum one must understand the knowledge and intention behind the author’s words. Before Cathy Duffy began homeschooling her three children in 1982, she went in search of a curriculum that would aid her in that process. She, in turn, found many other educators who were having trouble finding an effective, Christian-based curriculum among the myriad texts on the market. Because of this she began to compile her findings and share her broad knowledge in homeschooling and managed to publish them.

    She is the author of many Christian-based curriculum guides and has become an expert in this field, able to share her knowledge and consult with other individuals trying to begin or change their homeschool curriculums. She is an active member in local and statewide homeschooling organizations and is the coordinator and board member of Christian Family Educators in Orange County, California.
