Book lover, home educator (8 students over 25 years), author, and story-hungry Outschool teacher. One of my greatest joys is seeing your learners spark an interest in great literature through our discussions together!
Homework Offered

Grades Offered
You can acquire whichever edition of 𝑻𝒉𝒆 π‘»π’˜π’†π’π’•π’š-𝑢𝒏𝒆 𝑩𝒂𝒍𝒍𝒐𝒐𝒏𝒔 that works for you. Beg, borrow, or buy! 

I will also provide a very easy-to-acquire list of supplies for small projects each week. You should have everything on handβ€”I'm a mom, too, and I know how difficult it can be to find obscure supplies, so I choose projects that are easy for you to put together.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
