Where Passion and Dedication Meet
Our dedicated team of experienced professionals are at the heart of what we do, utilizing their unique skills and passion to move the work of our Non-Profit Organization forward. Without them, Black Homeschoolers of Central Florida, Inc. would not be where it is today. Meet some of our team members below.
Rasheeda Denning, a homeschooling mom since 1998, created Black Homeschoolers of Central Florida, Inc. in 2009 because her family was tired of the lack of diversity, lack of support, and isolation they felt within the homeschooling community. "Our family's experience became the catalyst for me to create a safe space for Black families to connect, build friendships, learn and grow together. I was very intentional with naming our organization, in hopes that families would find us. In this beautiful space, families have found support, motivation, and comfort in sharing experiences unique to the Black community and the education of Black children. A Village has been formed, and I am forever grateful to see our children flourishing in an environment where their culture and history is celebrated and explored. It has been my passion to use our platform to bring homeschooling awareness to parents as a legal and viable option to educating their children."
Enrollment Coordinator/ Executive Team
A well-respected member of the Black Homeschoolers of Central Florida, Inc. team, Toi Bynes has been a part of BHCFL since 2015. As part of the Executive Team, she plays a vital role in shaping our vision and programs. "Being a part of this Village means everything to our family.
It means representation, belonging, celebrating our history, having community, and so much more. We’ve made lifelong connections with other families, experienced so many amazing adventures, and daily feel the love and support to continue on our homeschooling journey. We are thankful to be a part of this community and look forward to many more years of connecting, building, learning, and growing together with our BHCFL Family!"
Parent Workshops Facilitator/Homeschool Coach
"The ease of starting a homeschool does not always translate into the ease of running and/or maintaining a homeschool.
As a Certified Parent Educator, I can help you tap into your inner "Child Development Specialist" to keep your child's natural thirst for knowledge & discovery alive. As a Veteran Homeschooling Parent, I can help you tap into your inner "Teacher" to create a child-
centered environment conducive to learning. As a Pediatric Nurse, I can help you tap into your inner "Child Advocate" to follow-up on health concerns that could make learning difficult for your child & get the services they need.
