I have a new blog!
Yep, that’s right. I have branched out and created another blog, this one devoted to the research my friend Rachel and I are doing on educational systems in Utopian communities. Although I plan to continue to post short updates about this project here on cypresstreeblog, the majority of information will be here https://exploringutopianeducation.wordpress.com. Be sure to follow this blog for exciting new updates on our journey into unique education.

Hi, very-neglected-blog! I have some exciting news…in a few days I will start teaching in private school. Yikes! I wanted to document my journey here, because I feel that my life as an educator directly links to my life as a home school grad. Here are the reasons I have choosen to teach:
- To be salt and light in the world (the school is in Washington, D.C. and secular).
- To help kids that were less fortunate in their parents’ school choice.
- To aid special education students that may not have had parents able to help them with certain disabilities, without training or financial hardship (my school deals exclusively with reading-based learning disabilities)
- Because God has called me to.
- Because I had the best training in the world from my Mom and I want to pass it on.
- To continue my life-long learning.
- To pay off debt.
- Because it is fun to do while I wait for my own children.

Perhaps the most precious treasure to society is the raw power held by the minds of the young. One group decided that the parents of a child are the best keepers of this treasure and they are called “homeschoolers” across the world. Even after facing sideways glances, mislabeling, and even persecution the group has continued to expand, and I want to write about an often underrepresented section of this world–the normal homeschooler. I’m writing about the girl or guy who has friends, is socially qualified, and also happens to have a 4.0 GPA that was earned at home. I will be changing all names for the duration of this blog so as to protect the privacy of those mentioned. Follow me on the journey towards locating the normal homeschooler (or for that matter the abnormal public schooler).
