Mrs. Stanley teaches history and government.
Alison Stanley and her husband of fifteen years have five children, all who have been homeschooled at some point in their education. Alison has a special love for teaching, especially American history and constitutional law. She received her BA in marketing from Michigan State University and her JD from the University of Michigan Law School.
Six months after Alison’s first child was born, she felt called to leave behind a thriving legal career to pursue the vocation of full-time motherhood. She never regretted the decision.
Alison’s work before becoming a stay-at-home mother included work in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, as well as at the Honigman Miller Schwartz & Cohn Law Firm.

"Mrs. Stanley was Awesome! I used to hate history, but now it is my favorite subject!!! Thanks, Mrs. Stanley!!!"
"Every week we focused on a different subject about the Civil War and and it really gave me a better understanding of what the war was actually all about. Mrs.Stanley was very helpful when I had questions or problems."
"Before this class, I hardly knew anything about Law and the Supreme Court, and now when I watch the news or read govt.-related articles, I actually understand what they are saying!"
"The homework was very difficult at times, but it always helped me to understand the subject. I liked how it wasn't just a repeat of what we learned in class, but instead forced us to think deeply and critically about what we learned to come up with an answer."
"Homeschool Connections has been a total answer to prayers, with a great Catholic environment and wonderful teachers and kids."
