After graduating with my BA in Elementary Education, I had the privilege of teaching preschool for 2 years and 4th grade for 4 years in the state of Missouri. I then began to home school and gained a tremendous amount of knowledge and wisdom educating at home! About the same time, I was hired on as a free-lance writer for the Mailbox Magazine and have been freelancing for them for the past 13 years. Along with free-lancing, I taught 6th-9th grades at a Classical School for the past 2 years.
The more I learn and teach classically, the more classically educated my lesson planning and my educational ideas become.
Tremendous amounts of thank you notes and encouragement from wonderful students and parents. These are the best kind of awards a teacher can get!
