Happy 1st Day of Spring!

Spring 3HURRAY!

On this first day of spring, I can happily announce that all classes are now listed for the Fall 2018 semester.


Please click on “ONLINE CLASSES” on the right side under “PAGES” to view all the offerings. 

The links are listed under each class to access all the details and to register.


Thank you!

I hope to see your students in class this fall.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me! 🙂




That’s what I tell my students regularly!    


Vocabulary is a major component of the IEW curriculum.  In my classes, your students will learn over 40 new words each school year!    Most importantly, it’s done along with grammar in the context of writing.


I hope to see your student in the classroom where he/she will NOT meet an eccedentesiast!  😉

Something New in Fall 2018

One of the exciting features of the upcoming fall classes that I will be offering is an opportunity for students to share their work with each other online in a safe, secure environment.  While there is usually time in some of the classes for students to read their assignments to the class personally, that is not always the case.  I know that they would enjoy reading each other’s work.   It is a learning opportunity to share among peers in this way.   This is just another feature of what you will receive in one of my online writing classes!  😊   

Please be sure to “follow me” to stay informed, and please share with your homeschooling connections!  Thank you!
