TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Layers of Learning is the combined effort of two sisters, Michelle Copher and Karen Loutzenhiser, who are happy homeschool moms. Between the two families we have ten kids and 2 decades worth of teaching them under our belts. Our kids range from pre-school age to high school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Our style is very eclectic. We have taken our favorite things from each popular style and sandwiched them together. The Layers of Learning Homeschool Curriculum is divided into four year cycles, as popular in the classical method of homeschooling. Each individual unit can also stand alone and is tied to lots of “Additional Layers” of learning as in the unit study method. Our curriculum uses living books, not just text books, as in the Charlotte Mason method. Unlike most complete curriculums, we don’t give you a list of books you must read (translation: expensive purchases) or a series of scripted lesson plans with assignments you must complete. We’ve written this so it becomes your school, your style, your curriculum. It works as well as a jumping board for unschoolers as it does for intense classical style families. We've also gotten great feedback from teachers and schools using Layers of Learning.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

We were very excited to be the grand prize winners for the Lego Lesson Plan contest, where we helped the Lego Company develop a plan for using solar powered light-up Lego houses in an eco-friendly miniature city we that we fittingly dubbed "Sunshine City."

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Michelle is a history buff and scientist, with a bachelor's degree in biology. Over the past decade she has become a student and expert in government and politics as well. Most importantly, she is the mom to six boys, and THAT is real experience. Karen has degrees in child development and elementary education, but her favorite little students are her own four kids, so she chose the route of homeschool mom. She also founded a K-8 charter school and serves on her local library board.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Michelle, a homeschool mom for over nine years, teaches her six boys in North Idaho. She runs, reads, obsesses about politics, has a mostly clean house most of the time, can’t grow a garden to save her life, is completely tone deaf, and is married to the best man ever to grace this earth. Karen, a mother of four who has always homeschooled her kids, recently founded a charter school in her Utah city. She loves crafts and cooking, is the queen of organization, teaches piano, has competed in the Long Bridge Swim twice (and beat two of her brothers), and is married to a 6’6″ tall, handsome, and hilariously funny man.
