About Me

My photo

I am a home schooling mom to three amazing kiddos.  We primarily use the Montessori pedagogy to guide our journey.  We also enjoy aspects of classical education and are part of Classical Conversations community. 

I write a Montessori column for Practical Homeschooling Magazine.

I am still a geek at heart and at times miss my former career as an Information Architect/SharePoint Specialist.  I don't have much free time but if I do, it is spent on comic books and video games.

Khan Academy

| No comment
I recently stumbled across a great online education resource.  The Kahn Academy is a free online resource that strives to bring a world-class education to anyone, anywhere.  It provides over 3000 in depth videos on key concepts, especially those concerning science and math.  It also provides numerous online "challenges" and can track the progress of each student.

I'm impressed with the detail and range of topics available.  While most of these are too advanced for my young audience, I have already enjoyed brushing up on a few concepts myself.  I do plan to show a few of the astronomy videos this fall as we explore the topic.  We will probably explore some of the art history videos as well.  Being a bit of a math junkie I found the Doodling in Math videos enjoyable.

If you find something exceptionally interesting here, please let me know!
