I am an LDS homeschooling mother of three, “Raisin” born in 2007, “Strawberry” born in 2012, and “Kitty” born in 2015.
I have a degree in English and teaching experience as a writing tutor and also as an elementary-level teacher at local homeschool co-ops, where I have taught language arts, Spanish, history, and STEM. I love creating games and hands-on activities for my kids, especially activities with an emphasis on great books.
Homeschooling is the most difficult thing I've ever done, as well as the most rewarding. I depend on God's guidance to help me, although many of the teaching ideas I share are secular in nature.
My first goal in setting up Line upon Line Learning is to provide encouragement to other homeschool families. I never intended to homeschool before my son was of school age, so when I started out on my homeschool journey, it felt a little overwhelming. I hope my stories, my research, my suggestions, and my products assist others as they begin the journey too.
I also hope that my thoughts on education will reach educators of all kinds. My educational resources make learning and reading fun for all students.
I hope to share the joy of learning with all parents, teachers, and children. Take things one day at a time, and ENJOY!
I blog about education on the Line upon Line Learning blog. The tagline is “Enjoy life-long learning, one day at a time.” I provide ideas and suggestions for new homeschoolers, thoughts on education in general, hands-on learning ideas, and printables or games for the home educating or classroom teacher to enjoy.
I run an exclusive homeschooling support group, Line upon Line Homeschooling, on Facebook. Use the contact form to request membership.
Long before I knew I would homeschool my son, I began reviewing books I read on Rebecca Reads. The archives provide a number of suggestions in classic literature, nonfiction, and children’s literature.
