LaKendra's passion to educate has motivated me to become a better educator to my own children.  Oftentimes we rely on schools to educate our children, but LaKendra models that we are our children's first teachers. She a wife and mother but she makes herself accessible. She has given me so many tips and so much knowledge on creating a fun-loving environment for my family and for that I'm extremely grateful.

 LaKendra and the Kumi Ori Learning program have been answers to my prayers! After my husband and I decided to homeschool we received great support and wise counsel from her. She is very patient, insightful, and encouraging. The help she provided gave us the confidence and understanding to provide each of our three children ages 4yrs old, 2yrs old, and 9 months old (that's right even including the baby) with a personalized learning experience that has allowed for great strides in their education! A few examples include: how to help my 2-yr-old's speech without stalling his multilingual learning, math tips for my 4-yr-old, and more importantly tips on how to teach all three children in one lesson at different levels! Thank you LaKendra for making your expertise available to parents like me who desire to assist their children in reaching their highest potential!

As a first time parent who is new to the world of homeschooling, I started off very intimidated and overwhelmed. When I reached out to LaKendra she helped ease the flood of emotions. She taught me that having a goal for children and organization is key. Once she walked with me and showed examples of lesson plans, and I now have the confidence to continue my homeschooling journey.

I highly recommend Kumi Ori. After multiple organized and rich learning sessions with LaKendra, I was impressed with all I learned from her and how she tailored her vast knowledge and information to meet my desires to teach my son. Even though he was only 17 months when we started, I have been able to begin more formal homeschool concepts with him because of our meetings.

She has 3 very different children that she is personally teaching and raising with multiple home school methods. Seeing how she does it in her home gave me great ideas to model as well, which I greatly appreciate.

I love her heart to teach and educate others, (her children, my child, myself, and so many others) and her manner is very informative and helpful and tailored to your questions and needs.

Thank you for getting us on the right track and showing us what to do to keep moving forward. 😍
