About Us

BTDT Homeschool Hosts

Meet Maria & Nicole:

 We are Nicole & Maria and are thrilled to have you here!

We live in North Texas and have been great friends for over 10 years.  We have 5 children between our two families and have both homeschooled from the very beginning. We collectively have over 30 years of secular homeschool experience and we have so much to share with you! There may be wine and we may go off topic from time to time so sit back and join us as we share honest tips and advice for what’s worked for us and what hasn’t to help you on your journey.

We couldn’t have done it without all our homeschool friends who guided us over the years on our journey. The Been There Done That Homeschool Podcast was created as a way for us to pay it forward and give back to the secular homeschool community. Enjoy!



Maria is a single mom and has graduated one child with a  homeschool high school diploma, in addition to an Associates degree with honors at the local community college. They have gone on to a 4 year university studying Biomedical Engineering. Her second child is homeschooling for high school and is currently enrolled in dual credit courses at the local community college and will follow the path of their sibling. Maria has continued to thrive as a homeschool educator from the beginning and also as a divorced single woman
