Steve Taylor, President

Steve & Penny Taylor reside near Stilesville, Indiana (Putnam County).  Steve serves as President of the IAHE.  Steve and Penny are the parents of nine children, ranging in age from 17 to 34 years of age, and have homeschooled for 29 years. They served as Regional Reps for ten years prior to joining the Board. Their family is active in 4-H with archery, shooting sports, and livestock projects. With some children now married, they are enjoying a new season of life – that of being grandparents – and passing the baton to the next generation of home educators. Penny has served as the Convention Director since 2013.

Tara Bentley, Executive Director

Mark & Tara Bentley first entered the homeschooling world in 2001 when they decided to pull their oldest daughter from the public school system. Looking back, it’s clear to see how God directed each step of their journey. Both of their daughters have since graduated high school. Mark and Tara have been active in their local homeschool community for many years and consider it a blessing to serve other families as they seek support and encouragement while beginning their own homeschool journey.
Mike & Amy Sager

Amy Sager, Publications & Communications Director

Mike and Amy Sager are raising their five children on a farm God has blessed them with in the rolling hills of Ellettsville, Indiana. There is no time to be bored with their never-ending projects—writing books, playing music, filming, woodworking, firearms training, building and programming RC planes, and more. Homeschooling is truly a way of life for them, and by including their children in as much of life as possible including work, trips, meetings, volunteering, conferences, and more, they are passing on the vision of home education to the next generation. They are passionate about helping parents feel confident in their ability to homeschool and love helping homeschoolers connect in their area. Amy also serves as the IAHE Publications Director.
