Owner & Founder

Erica Kesilman

Welcome!  My name is Erica Kesilman.  Together with my husband and three whimsical, enlightening children, I live in Melbourne Beach, FL where you’ll find us uncovering the magic of nature any chance we can get!


I founded Conscious Homeschooling, LLC to walk alongside families in their journey to find what they are looking for in their parenting and homeschool experience. It is no argument that our society’s fast pace of life is often clouded by overwhelming mainstream advice that distracts us from our core values and parenting instincts. We often get stuck in old patterns that leave us feeling unfulfilled, confused, or  lost. As your guide, I will help you manifest, express, and realize a vision that is meaningful to your family where you can find true harmony, peace, and a love of learning.

I am a former classroom teacher and educational technology coordinator with a dual master’s degree in K-12 Educational Administration and Supervision and Educational Technology and a B.A. in Psychology.  I currently work for Wiley, Inc. as Course Developer and Facilitator where I write, publish and facilitate continuing education courses for professional teachers and higher education students across America.  I have worked with families and students of all ages in both traditional and alternative educational settings including college test prep and all other core academic content areas.  I am also in the process of becoming a certified Conscious Parent Coach with the Jai Institute.


Using an integrated approach that includes evidence-based educational psychology practices supported by emerging brain science, conscious parenting, and professional teaching approaches, I can show you how to actualize life-long learning and joy. As a self-directed education advocate and parent enthusiast, I can pave the way for your family’s journey through so that you and your children can share your creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurial spirit with the world.  


But, this does not start with the child, it starts with the parent. It is only when we, the parent, become aware of our conditioning, patterns, fears, and desire to be in control, that we can then fully let go to then see and accept our children for who they are. When we begin to see our children for who they are, when we accept, and when we trust, it is only then that they can truly thrive. When we become aware, our children can then use their extraordinary learning capacities to change the world. They develop a strong sense of self, self-expression, and feel valued for who they are instead of what they achieve.  


I chose the name Conscious Homeschooling for one reason: We optimize our powerful learning capacities when we are aware. When we are aware of how our own egos, agendas, and expectations prevent us from showing up for our children in ways that bring forth fulfillment, connection, and unconditional love with ourselves, the community, and the natural world.  In my program you will be able to manifest peace, harmony and connection with yourself and your children in addition to driven, confident, and well-educated children. 

I look forward to guiding you through this transformation.
