Go to the Board of Advisors List

The IHEN Advisory Board consists entirely of volunteer parents, interested in building, organizing and running the Indiana Home Educators' Network Web Project.

It all started with the vision of Jane Casey, for an open resource for Hoosier Homeschoolers. In the late 1990's, an e-mail networking and discussion list was started, called IndianaHomeschoolers.

When Jane had to move to Illinois, she enlisted the help of Deb Harbeson and Ben Bennett (homeschoolers she had met online, in various forums) to co-moderate the list.

Over the years, the list has grown in subscribers and reputation, and discussions of an organization of sorts was discussed. Over the years, these discussions evolved into what you see today — an Internet networking project, based entirely on the Web. It takes the original vision and goals of Jane Casey's e-mail list resource, and expands it into the IHEN Project.

Ben Bennett, a Full-Time Dad, homeschooler, and photographer/writer/designer, began developing what is now the IHEN Web Project, in 2000. He has pooled the talents of other homeschooling parents who also share Jane's original vision of creating an internet based resource with the simple motto: Helping Hoosiers Homeschool.

All of the IHEN Advisors are volunteers, chipping in time, money, advice and talents wherever and whenever they can. As the IHEN Project grows, it will be entirely due to the hard work and contributions of everyone sharing in this personal web project.

If you want to help other homeschoolers in the state get connected with information, support and resources, please consider becoming a project Advisor.
