About This Site

I help English-speaking families of disabled/chronically ill and neurodivergent children who are developmentally at the elementary level:

5

Get started home educating with confidence.

5

Set-up simple, fluid, and unrestrictive methods for planning, organizing, and record-keeping.

5

Inspire the entire family to remain motivated throughout the year.

5

Manage homework in the after-school hours or school work throughout the day, if distance learning.

5

Manage time realistically so that you can free your family to spend more quality time together (and not only on weekends).

5

Find, create, and adapt materials for your child with disabilities (even if educating other children).

5

Start figuring it out for yourself by giving you the tools you need to think about making education accessible within the home setting.

About Me

I am an educational consultant, licensed teacher, and mom to a son with disabilities.

 

I know firsthand what it’s like to be the primary caregiver to a child who does not fit a system, a set of rules, and a generic outline. I learned that rather than forcing my son into my life, I needed to find ways to fit into his.

Seven years ago, I left the public school system to home educate my son. The journey has been profound and winding. I thought I knew what kind of teacher I wanted to be for him. Instead, I have become the humble student. I am a work in progress.

I am passionate about speech and language acquisition as well as literacy development in children as I have learned the basics of ASL alongside my son. I also consider myself a stubborn researcher—never satisfied with the status quo, always in search of educational innovation.

 

As an advocate for disability rights, I have a particular affinity for educational accessibility in both policy and design.

 

You will also find me standing up for all human rights. We can never uphold the disabled community without supporting all communities that have been oppressed by white supremacy and authoritarian models.

I view home education as resistance to systems that have rejected individuals like my son over the decades. Alternative education is my silent protest to institutionalization and oppression. In my little corner of the world, I work toward accessibility through equity-centered approaches to education.

I believe…

5

we are all teachers.

5

we are all students.

5

all parents have been homeschooling since the birth of their first child.

5

parents are the powerful voices behind educational reform.

5

children with disabilities thrive through love-based, accessible opportunities that allow them to be themselves.

5

the world is preparing for our children as we prepare our children for the world (because we are in the world daily).
