TEACHING EXPERIENCE

We are educational consultants - working with all grade levels from PreK to 12th grade in an alternative setting for homeschool and independent study students. We know that one size does not fit all and are constantly looking for unique ways to reach all types of teachers and learners.

MY TEACHING STYLE

We believe that every moment is a learning opportunity. As educators, we should strive to create meaningful learning experiences beyond the four walls of the traditional classroom setting.
