Learner Spotlight: Lucy and Jack Kurtenacker

Jack and Lucy final

Lucy and Jack Kurtenacker are two of iLEAD Exploration’s amazing learners. Lucy has been homeschooled for two years and this is Jack’s first year to be homeschooled. Both Lucy and Jack are grateful that they can be homeschooled. They love that they can spend extra time on the subjects that they enjoy the most as well as have the flexibility to take learning on the go whether it is outdoors, on field trips or on family trips.

Lucy, a creative, funny and friendly free spirit, loves to act. She performed in the Wizard of Oz through Creative Kids Playhouse. She also enjoys writing and directing her own theatrical productions that are performed by her neighborhood friends. Lucy is able to express her creativity through art. Having the opportunity to take art classes at Art Steps has helped her blossom as an artist. The study of different cultures fascinates Lucy and has inspired her to get a passport in hopes that she will go to France and Germany next summer. One of this year’s highlights for Lucy was that she received a blue ribbon in sewing for her apron at Imaginology.
Jack is a generous, sweet and compassionate introvert. He is a whiz at math and reading and loves science, engineering, Legos, baseball and video games. Homeschooling has been a great fit for Jack who loves to be with his family and who likes taking classes that challenge him to learn in unique ways. One unique experience for Jack this year was being a member of a team, the Lego Nerds from Independent Learning Academy in Aliso Viejo,  that participated in the First Lego League Challenge at Legoland. They had to present a motorized project with the theme of water.  One of this year’s greatest accomplishments for Jack was when he received the first MVP game ball for his Little League team this spring. We are so thankful to have Lucy and Jack as part of the iLEAD Exploration family!
