Work with The Give Way

I’ve spent almost half my life working with kids, including a decade as a teacher at the middle school level in the private and public system. My teaching credential is for K-12 Social Science, but I also taught five years of English in the private school system.  And, even though I no longer taught English the last five years of my teaching career, I did continue to teach essay writing and note-taking within the history classes I had.

I chose to quit teaching when I had my first child.  My experience in the school system led me to learn more about homeschooling, which is our current course in life.  Since having my first child 6 years ago, I’ve spent the years learning about different homeschooling styles and curriculum, while doing in depth research on the benefits of natural learning as I changed how I had been trained to view education.

If you’d like to work with me, please fill in the form below with which service you’d like or a description of how I can help you.  I’ll contact you, and we’ll see what we can work out.

I am currently also a vendor for iLead, if you would like to use student funds for services rendered.

Monetary Support
If you’d like to help support this website monetarily, you can do so a couple ways.

Amazon Affiliate: Click the link, or any link on my pages, and start doing your own shopping on Amazon, and I’ll receive a percentage.  This does  not affect your transaction at all.
