Thanks for stopping by! I’m Leah: former teacher, current stay-at-home mom. I have a Master’s degree in Reading Curriculum and Instruction. This blog gives me a chance to share my passions for education, the Charlotte Mason philosophy, and my children. I learned about Charlotte Mason three years ago, when I became a teacher at an Ambleside School. It changed the way I looked at education and parenting. I have been blessed with a supportive husband and two young children. I hope you enjoy reading about our experiences with the Charlotte Mason philosophy.
About This Blog
This blog has been on my heart for over a year. I’ve been storing up ideas to write about and observations I’ve made. I’ve discussed the concept with friends, dreamed up names, and even researched how to start a blog. But somehow, I kept talking myself out of it.
I didn’t feel worthy. Sometimes I yell at my children. My house can be a mess. I’ve used sticker charts and other forms of bribery. Thankfully over the past year, I’ve been reminded again and again that God uses imperfect people.
Here is my hope: I hope that I can share with you how I use the Charlotte Mason method in my everyday life; encourage you as you teach your child during his or her most important years; inspire you with ideas; and maybe even make you laugh.
