My name is Virginia Knowles. I have ten children, ages 8 to 26. I started actively teaching my first daughter in her preschool years in the very early 1990's. I've certainly learned a lot in more than two decades of home schooling!
For 2013-2014, I taught taught middle school and high school English and social studies in a small private Christian school.
I am currently home schooling only an elementary age daughter, as well as teaching integrated American history, literature, and arts appreciation classes to home school middle school and high school students.
Many of the articles on this blog, especially the literature and vocabulary posts, are adapted from lessons I used in my home school co-op classroom from 2006-2013.
Others, including some video posts, are from workshops I have presented at the Books and Beyond literature conference in Orlando.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on this blog, and welcome any ideas for future articles or improvements.
