At New Hope since 2007
Martha Geraghty was raised north of Boston, where she and her husband first met and married. After 8 years in California, they settled back in this area to raise their 3 children. The Geraghtys have explored several educational avenues, including public school, private school, parochial school and "afterschooling." While not homeschooling herself, Martha carries within her "the heart" of a homeschooler. She credits her parents with teaching their large family the importance of education, and that not every child fits into one educational mold.
While working as a writer/editor, Martha interviewed Mrs Smith for a website article about New Hope Tutorials. She was hooked! In February of 2007 she came to work as Joan's assistant, and found her place serving the homeschooling community.
Martha studied English Literature/Business Communications at the University of New Hampshire. Her past work experience includes registration and educational programming with the North Shore Music Theater; conference and event planning with Interop, Inc. of California; public relations work with H.P. Hood Inc. and the San Jose Convention and Visitor Bureau; and website editing/writing for the North Shore Christian Network, based out of Beverly, MA.
