While not all of my students would learn to read in their first grade year, the beauty of watching them grow is just {Read More}

Saturday Activity Stations. Perfect for busy moms. Super fun for kids.

Saturday has this reputation for being a day of respite, but sometimes it’s not so much. Between homeschooling and single parenting, I struggle to feel like there really is much point in that thing we call the “weekend.” Truthfully, Saturdays usually look a whole lot like the other days of the week with much to do around the house and for my business.
