Our Staff

Brandi Woodlee

Owner of FAITH

My name is Brandi Woodlee. I have been married to my husband, Michael, for 28 years. We have two daughters, Mariah and Emily, who are now 21 and 25, and three grandchildren. I accepted Christ as my Savior in 1998. We were a homeschooling family for about 15 years. Most of those years I was in some type of leadership position in the support group Family Academics In The Home (FAITH). In 2012 we became a 501(c)3 non profit corporation, of which I am the President. I have always had a desire to help and support other homeschooling families. My goal is to provide everything a homeschooling family needs or wants to complete their journey. After my years of experience, and now that my children are grown, I feel this is my time to make it happen! I look forward to seeing your children learn, grow, and thrive in our family at FAITH Homeschool Academy!

Hi everyone! My name is Sarah Fancher, and I am excited to join the FAITH family this year. I am a graduate from Point Park University in Pittsburgh, PA. For the past three years, I have been residing in Florida. Professionally, I have been a Dance Educator and Performer for over 8 years. My love for the arts is boundless, and that includes English and Language Arts, and literature. My academic passions include reading, blogging, and writing poetry. I am looking forward to bringing my love for these things to the classroom in hopes that my students will fall in love with reading and writing, too. In my spare time, you can find me choreographing in the studio, reading novels, playing with my dog, or preparing our house for our family’s newest arrival!!

Science and History

Hi!! I’m so excited to be a part of FAITH for yet another year! I’ve been a homeschool mom myself for the past 11 years and was homeschooled myself! Professionally, I’ve been a Registered Nurse for 15 years and have always been drawn to science! I love being able to see God’s handiwork in every field of science and love sharing my passion & my faith with my students! From dissecting sharks to Periodic Table Amazing Races, I try to make science as fun and engaging as possible. In my spare time, you will find me working out in our ninja backyard, at the beach paddle boarding, remodeling our old home, reading, or playing board games with my family & friends.

Coleen Hall


I graduated from UCF in 2000 with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I taught for three years before we decided to begin a family. My intentions were to return to the classroom, but my heart was at home. When my oldest was ready for kindergarten, I decided to homeschool. Homeschooling has been my focus for the last twelve years, as well as homeschool evaluations and testing. I am a certified evaluator and SAT (Standford Achievement Test through Bob Jones University) test. While my teaching certification is grades 1-6, I am able to evaluate from K-12th. When I'm not homeschooling, I am busy with three teenagers and my husband. I look forward to seeing all of your child's hard work!

Kelli Hallock


Hello! I was born and raised in Port Orange, Florida. I earned my undergraduate degree in English from Stetson University and my graduate degree in English Education from Liberty University. I taught high school English in the Volusia County school district before coming on board with FAITH. My academic passions include reading fiction, creative writing, poetry, and literary analysis. I'm looking forward to sharing my love for these things with my students in hopes that they will grow as readers and writers. In my spare time, I also enjoy large cups of coffee, spending time at the beach, and being a mom to our two girls, Ella and Audrey.

Tiffany Hopkins


Hello! I am very excited to be part of the FAITH family! I graduated from Southeastern University with my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and began teaching first and second grade! After moving to North Carolina, I received my Master's degree in Literacy from Queens University and continued to teach in the public school system for about 7 years before stepping away to start my family. For the past few years, I have had the privilege of staying home to raise my two beautiful children, Griffin and Harper. My husband and I are also very involved in our local church and help lead the praise and worship on Sunday mornings and are the small group coordinators. Now that both of my children will be in school full time, I am ready to jump back in and begin teaching again! I am very excited to have the opportunity for this new adventure.
