Emily graduated from West Virginia University with a Bachelors of Music Education. Upon graduation, she and her husband, Brandon, ventured to South Texas where she taught general and instrumental music in the public schools. They have since welcomed three beautiful children and moved back to West Virginia. Emily has found her purpose at home educating her children with the Charlotte Mason method.
Being educating in public schools herself and teaching in that environment, for Emily, discovering the Charlotte Mason philosophy of education was a breath of fresh air. Although her oldest is just finishing up Year 1 of formal education, Emily has spent about 2.5 years delving deeply into Charlotte Mason’s writing and books/blogs/articles about her method in order to understand the practical application of C.M.’s methods in her own home. Charlotte Mason said that “Education is an atmosphere, a discipline, a life.” This is the simple foundation in which Emily strives to cultivate a positive and rich education for her family.
