Why I'm Here:
- to offer mentorship or coaching to other members
- to connect with other self-directed learners in my area

My Biggest Current Interests & Projects:
- My family is currently adopting a 17-year-old unschooled friend from Hawaii whose mother died, so we are busy forming those connections and learning about that process. I am also dancing a lot and writing about unschooling.

Bio:
I'm an unschooling mom with a few unschooling talks and articles under my belt -- I have been studying how people really learn for 23 years now. My two sons and I explore the world through pretend play, all kinds of games, the internet, TV, travel, and following our own trains of thought.

I'm a writer (poetry and creative non-fiction) and a former English teacher with a specialty in English and American literature. I'm also a former astrology and Tarot reader with an interest in Jungian psychology, dream work, and world mythology. And I'm an advocate for children, diversity, and the poor, with an interest in the culture of class. I'm currently writing a series of children's picture books for a food pantry and outreach center that makes the issues of poverty more visible by telling the story through a child's eyes. I am also writing a fiction book for adults called The Housewife's Alchemy, which uses dreamwork and Jung's take on alchemy to move the story forward.

I really look forward to working with anyone who would like to read, write, and create projects around any of these interests. I know we would learn a lot together.
