One of the many benefits of homeschooling your kids will be how you grow as a student and educator.
Over the years I have read plenty of books helping me to understand the Classical Model. Listened to hundreds of Podcasts, watched YouTube videos, and attended many Practicums.
Below you find a list of resources to help you become a better educator. Whether you are brand new in the Classical Tradition or you are seasoned and looking to further your own knowledge and understanding. This list is far from exhausted and if I have missed something you believe is must read, watch or attend please leave a note in the comments.

But where do I start?
Along with all your other jobs as a mom its easy to get overwhelmed by the information available. The best practice to get through a list like the one above is to pick one. Choose one that speaks to your current level of homeschooling or the one just above. As classical educators, we don’t need to know everything to teach our students well, just enough to ask the next question.
Please come and find me on Instagram, and let me know what you’ve chosen to further your education. Or how we can add to this list.
