Hello, I’m so glad you’re interested in the Oaxacaborn blog!
Why Should You Work With Me?
I represent a different slice of homeschool subculture. I’m a second-generation homeschooler, the child of missionary parents who became unintentional homeschool pioneers behind the Iron Curtain. (You can read more about my unusual background as a second-generation homeschooler / third culture kid.) I’m a classical educator and gifted-education advocate, but I’m also somewhat of a unicorn in the homeschool world, since I have an only child — a neurologically atypical, asynchronous, miracle child who is wired differently, at that.
What Do I Write About?
- Classical Education
- Gifted/2E Homeschooling
- Learning Mandarin Chinese
- Curriculum and Book Reviews
- Second-Gen Homeschoolers’ Impact on Christian Subculture
- and…Interior Design! My interior styling has been published in print.
I’ve been a writer as long as I can remember. I’m a published author and editor, and a long-time blogger (I have been writing online continuously since 2002). I contribute to the iHomeschool Network, was a regular writer on the Sonlight Curriculum blog during the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 school years, and my work has appeared in print issues of Babiekins Magazine, in The Homeschool Handbook, and on Hip Homeschool Moms as well.
The Local Franklin / Nashville Connection
After moving nearly two dozens times in my life, I now write from my home office in Franklin/Nashville, Tennessee. In between homeschooling, helping my asynchronous eight-year-old with her Mandarin Chinese homework, and dreaming of my eventual memoir, I’m also trying to launch a classical homeschool co-op in Franklin.
