Meet the Directors

Susan Lundholm & Emelie Fairchild co-direct the Iron Mountain CSH Chapter.

Susan is married to Rob Lundholm and lives in the Iron Mountain area with her 8 children on a small hobby farm.  Along with homeschooling, Susan teaches English for VIP Kids and makes wonderful goats milk cheeses and sourdough breads.  Her background is in early education and she leads the youth group and faith formation for St. Mary & St. Joseph Parish in Iron Mountain.  She has been homeschooling for 11 years.

Emelie is married to Jesse Fairchild and also lives in the Iron Mountain area.  She has 7 children and enjoys playing on her farm with her family and traveling.  Emelie’s background is in secondary spanish education.  She has been homeschooling for 11 years as well.

Susan & Emelie started their homeschooling journey together 11 years ago and feel absolutely blessed to be working with each other and the families at Catholic Schoolhouse.  They feel the classical approach is solid and rewarding and the Catholic teaching throughout the material is essential to their homeschooling curriculum.
