Homeschooling for the last 4 years. Currently homeschooling 8, 5 and 4. Teacher Certification from the State of Washington.
I love to take topics my kids are interested in (snakes, cats, airplanes, geology, Minecraft) and help them see how many different subjects are interconnected to that topic. Living is not separated into neat subjects that don't intersect: history informs art/science/math/geography and vice versa. Everything is connected in some way and as children follow their interests they'll come into contact with all the connections needed to integrate new learning into their own knowledge.
I have the honor of being a mom and wife. And have been awarded with 3 wonderful kids and an awesome husband.
BA of Education (Secondary English) Minor in French
I believe in child-directed learning with adults as facilitators. Introducing new things to children is a pleasure and a privilege.
