"Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young."
While parents are the first teachers of their children, we believe that families benefit by having a partner on their education journey. Our goal is to create a central location where parents involved in all types of schooling (public, private and home-based schools) can find support and encouragement to help their children achieve their highest potential.
Attending IEP meetings, advocating for our children's unique needs, designing curriculum for use in the home setting and navigating the waters of special education has given us a world of knowledge. Combined with several years spent as a classroom teacher and program administrator both in private, homeschool, and public schools, we understand the need for assistance when parents are looking for a partner in their children's education.
Meet the Team
Our family has had the unique opportunity to parent several children, of varying needs and abilities, through a variety of educational settings. These experiences have motivated us to share our knowledge and our passion for supporting families in providing their children with the best and most appropriate education possible to meet the individual needs of their family.
