My Professional Background
M.S. Curriculum & Instruction
trained in Reggio Emilia, Montessori, and Waldorf
I am a professional curriculum writer and homeschool consultant, and I also run Little Bluestem, a new homeschool co-op for families
in Southern Illinois who are interested in progressive education. I absolutely love my job and I would be very happy to support your family on this homeschool journey!
Pricing is below; however, if necessary, I will arrange a fee that works with your budget. I prefer PayPal but also accept money order or barter.
Appreciate all the free curriculum materials on the website? I gratefully accept donations through PayPal. You can also make a donation by choosing
something from my Wish List on Amazon.

the information is organized and right at your fingertips. I do all the research and all the work for you! You can just dive into the teaching! Just $75.00.
