Lauri Crowe is a home educating single mom who operates a monthly art swap group for homeschoolers, geared at connecting students interested in art with professional artist mentors. She is currently educating her own two teens at home, and has past experience with homeschooling grades K-12. Lauri has also been involved in public school education as support staff, volunteer art and literacy aide, and PTO member in the elementary grades.
Eclectic, student centered, project based creative teaching is Lauri's teaching style. Lauri believes that education starts with an understanding of how each individual child learns and has found that student centered projects allow the child to grow at their own rate while still developing a sense of self-confidence and accomplishment. Lauri has extensive experience with creating and utilizing teaching tools which benefit students who have a high functioning Asperger Syndrome diagnosis and other special needs learning challenges associated with speech, hearing, attention deficit disorder and sensory integration disorders.
