Sherri Seligson

Before Sherri Seligson was promoted to the position of “mother,” she worked as a marine biologist at Walt Disney World’s Living Seas pavilion in EPCOT Center, where she was involved in collecting and maintaining coral reef animals, especially focusing on fish nutrition and marine predator care. During this time, she completed research on shark behavior and was the first individual representing Walt Disney World to publish scientific research.

With an M.Ed., Sherri is the author of several science books and curricula for Apologia Educational Ministries, including full-course instructional videos that take students all over the world to explore and better understand science concepts in an engaging way. She is a prolific author, including Apologia science curriculum and videos, Internships for High School Credit, and her newest devotional called Nature Truths. She is a regular contributor to homeschool publications and newsletters and has written for marine related magazines such as Tropical Fish Hobbyist and Aquarium Magazine.

Residing in Orlando, Florida, Sherri and her husband, David, homeschooled their four children from kindergarten through high school for 21 years. All four have graduated and entered college with scholarships. One child has a doctorate in pharmacogenomics (cancer research), one is an R &D director for a nationwide plant nursery, another has a master’s degree in biomechanical engineering and also a physician, and the fourth has a master’s in counseling. As she has seen with her own children, Sherri realizes that even within the same family every child’s educational needs are different, and it is a new adventure tailoring their educational and career pathways. An international conference and retreat speaker, Sherri has a motivated heart for teaching families the importance of studying God’s creation and equipping them to give an answer for their faith, along with a desire to encourage moms on their homeschool journey.

Nature is the Best Classroom

Have you ever taken a walk outside with a three-year-old? It can take forever as each leaf is examined, acorns are gathered, and flowers are smelled. This is not just because your child is stalling before naptime. The outdoors is one of the best environments to teach all subjects, focusing on God’s amazing creation and its complex design. Research has also demonstrated that being outside improves attention, memory, and learning. Join Sherri as she explores the how and why behind taking your school outside and how to document what you are learning together. It is easy and FUN!

The mission of Apologia Educational Ministries is to publish curriculum and resources and provide services that help homeschooling students and families learn, live, and defend the Christian faith. Apologia’s curriculum is developed in a way that puts your child first, creating content that is exciting, challenging, and rewarding to motivate students to want to learn more about the world around them.
