As an educator and a mother of two lovely daughters, I spent a great deal of time searching for a curriculum which matched the ardent hope in my heart to nurture the minds of my children as well as their hearts.
Over time I found that the ideas and methods of Charlotte Mason came the nearest to matching the educational principles I could embrace. I added some ideas from Classical methods, but mostly I tried to shine a light on the hidden principles within Charlotte Mason's own books and her PNEU programs. From this was born my own curriculum: A Mind in the Light.
This curriculum reflects the depth of my feelings for each and every child's mind and endeavors to give teachers the tools they need to create an atmosphere of learning which stretches, delights and inspires, leading a student to the light. In this light, the mind finds truth, beauty and good.
About Me: Happily married, my husband and I are striving to raise our two beautiful daughters in sunny Florida. I have a BS in Elementary Education and have been a teacher at heart for a very long time.
"The imagination is a shining light which illuminates whatsoever it looks upon. Thus does the world without and the inheritance within, look so variously to different minds. By how much the soul shall illumine, by so much will it understand. The imagination is, "the light which lighteth every man that cometh into the world."
-Dr. Greville Macdonald, The Child's Inheritance
“The question is not, -- how much does the youth know? when he has finished his education -- but how much does he care? and about how many orders of things does he care? In fact, how large is the room in which he finds his feet set? and, therefore, how full is the life he has before him?”
-Charlotte M. Mason, School Education
"It is such a huge help to me to have your teaching notes. I’m a big believer in continuing self-education for homeschool teachers, but your guides give me the confidence to jump in while I’m learning. I don’t feel like I have to figure everything out before I implement it. I can’t tell you what a gift it has been for our family and I’m so glad I decided to go with it this year." ❤️❤️❤️
