Ruby: Ruby has been a homeschooling mom to her son for the last 6 years, starting in his 2nd grade. As someone who had always envisioned her kid going through public school, Ruby never thought she would be homeschooling. However, the journey began when it became apparent that her son's accelerated academic needs were not going to be met through the traditional school system. It continues to this day as it continues to be the best fit for his learning style. Ruby's role as a homeschool parent is that of a facilitator rather than a teacher as she uses multiple resources for his curriculum and finds the best approaches to support his interests and development. Ruby has a BS Electrical Engineering from UT Austin and an MBA from the UCLA Anderson School of Management.
