Well, the writer’s block continues so I asked Alison Manzer for some help. She graciously accepted my request to guest post and blew me away with the time & care she took in helping me out! Alison created a lovely post full of refreshing homeschooling ideas and innovative ways to embrace your children’s needs. I know you will enjoy it and feel free to ask any questions you may have.
Alison Manzer resides in Austin, Texas. She has been homeschooling her three sons with Waldorf inspired ideas and methods for the past eleven years. Sam, now twenty-two, is pursing a doctorate in Chemistry at Berkeley. Jack is seventeen and has two loves: art and music. James is fifteen and is passionate about the environment, science, and keeping fish. Rob, her husband, does an amazing job of keeping this rather eccentric household together!
Alison is passionate about studying history and literature and endeavors to use this enthusiasm to inspire her family as well as her other students. Currently, she leads a lively historical fiction book club in her home for middle school and high school students. She has homeschooled in three different states, and over the years has gained experience in adapting the Waldorf “head, heart, and hands” ideal of education to a variety of children and educational settings.
See you tomorrow!!
