Together, Jake and Allissa have committed themselves to homeschooling their children. Both being products of public school, Allissa in Davison, MI and Jake in San Diego, CA, they recognize and understand the importance of parents taking on the responsibility of teaching their children. Allissa was a kindergarten teacher, but has since answered the Lord’s call for her to teach her own children and to ensure that they receive a Christ-centered education. They are starting their second year with Heritage Christian Schools.
Jake has been a credentialed English teacher for San Diego Unified for 14 years and has seen first hand the positives and negatives of public school. Jake is currently the Dean of Students at an A-Typical school within SDUSD, and he sees the role of the family being active in a student's education more important than ever before.
As a family, the Womack’s enjoy camping, swimming, traveling, Little League, golf, bike riding, and many other outdoor activities. They drive to Michigan every summer to spend quality time with Allissa’s family and they enjoy stopping throughout the country to explore exciting places. They are blessed to call San Diego their home and have gained lifelong friendships through their church and through Heritage Christian.
Mike is the Senior Pastor at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Escondido. He has a communications degree from Whitworth University and a Masters of Divinity from Fuller Seminary.
Mike and Sarah feel blessed by God to be able to homeschool and are so grateful for the Heritage services and community that has helped make home education not only possible for them, but a joy. They love being able to guide and build their sons up in faith, character, and academics at home and in the community of other Christ-centered homeschool families.
