We started homeschooling Kid 2 before the pandemic for educational purposes, but quickly fell in love. We added Kid 1 BECAUSE of the pandemic, and have LOVED every minute of it. The changes in our family over the last 3 years have been spectacular. We believe in Christ, we hope in Christ, and NOW we speak of Christ EVERY DAY during our school time.
Before having my kiddos, I taught English, History, Economics, and Leadership at Connell High School. I have a Secondary Education and English major with History and Spanish minors from Eastern Washington University. But more important than all of that, I just TRULY love kids and helping them learn and grow is my passion. I am a huge nerd and LOVE to learn…about ANYTHING. I tend to lean towards both a Charlotte Mason learning approach (living books, music and art, and dictation) and a Unit Studies approach (total immersion into a given topic for many subject areas). But above all, I believe that learning should be fun. I plan to create an educational environment where these kids can learn to LOVE learning and become a community of learners.
