I was a public school teacher for 18 years. For the last eight years I coordinated two International Baccalaureate Programmes, often requiring me to create tools for teachers and students to use. Visit my blog at Momschooled.com, where we share our homeschooling journey.
I believe that all children can and do learn, but not at the same rates. Interests and past experiences play heavily on a child's readiness for any lesson. Students should take the lead in learning and we, as educators, just need to create the environment where their natural curiosity can take flight!
Well, my kid thinks I'm pretty great, so I have that going for me.
I have a Bachelor's degree in English from Flagler College and a Master's of Arts from Central Michigan University in Education Administration.
I live in Florida where I homeschool my sweet, Minecraft junkie son.
