As Director and Founder of Homeschool Garden since 2001, Erica Orosco Cruz’s mission is to keep families grounded and cultivate optimistic parenting.

Her real life experience draws from diverse settings with groups of children from infancy through adolescence: in a preschool setting, a family day care setting, at a resident camp, as a nanny, and as a mother who homeschooled her own children. During that time she became a certified RIE ™ Instructor, trained in Waldorf, and most recently she spoke at Herstory 2014 to more than 125 women and parents.

 

Erica is dedicated to providing an environment where children and families can thrive and grow together with a foundation of mutual respect.
