Hi there!

I am currently a homeschooling, blogging, graphic designing, fun-loving mom of 4 with lots of teaching experience.

 

I am a Jane of all trades with a passion for writing, art and art history, science, and web design. Prior to my homeschool career, I followed many different career paths that helped me to gain valuable experience in many different fields. I was an accountant, human resources manager, market manager, social media marketing guru, and copy editor. I have a degree in Graphic Design, Economics, and Agricultural Business and Environmental Science. I guess you might say I just love learning!

 

Now I own my own web design studio, Little Daisy Media, and have the great honor of homeschooling 3 of my kids (my oldest is an adult and has graduated college). I love fostering a love of learning in my kids, helping them to find their passions.

 

Along with teaching my own kiddos, I teach Art in the Park monthly for my local homeschool group as well as teach a variety of classes every semester at my homeschool co-op. I truly believe that learning should be fun first because if we enjoy learning, we will always find opportunities to do it. I encourage creative freedom so kids' work will be relevant to their lives, and they will connect with what they are learning.

 

When I am not teaching, I blog about my family's homeschooling journey on PatersonAcademy.com. I also enjoy reading, sewing, quilting, crocheting, baking, cooking, binge-watching TV shows, and being silly. See? Jane of all trades.
