Mary Hood, Ph.D., along with her husband, Roy, homeschooled their five children all the way from kindergarten through college entrance. All of them are now adults, and have made a successful transition to college and beyond.
For nine years, Mary ran a large resource center for homeschoolers in the Atlanta area, where ARCHERS is based. She is the author of such books as "The Relaxed Home School", "The Joyful Home Schooler", and "The Enthusiastic Home Schooler".
Now in her sixties, Mary continues to write and speak widely on issues pertaining to homeschooling, as well as the wider field of education. Her organization is currently trying to raise money to start a small private school and homeschooling resource center in Georgia, and is also involved in developing a curriculum guide for relaxed homeschooling.
