Kathy Ceceri has been a homeschooling mom for over 15 years. Her goal as a home educator is to keep things interesting for her kids -- and herself. With one son in college and the other well into high school, she's now a lot smarter than when she began.
Kathy began researching homeschooling before her first son even hit kindergarten age. She helped start one of the first support groups in her area open to all homeschoolers, and over the years has created many opportunities and programs where homeschooling families can learn and socialize together.
Kathy was the "Hands-On Learning" columnist for Home Education Magazine. Her articles and educational projects have appeared in magazines including FamilyFun and Wired, and in the bestselling Geek Dad series of books. She was also a founder and co-editor of the Wired.com blog GeekMom.
Kathy has written several activity books for kids and families, including Robotics: Discover the Science and Technology of the Future and GeekMom: Projects, Tips, and Adventures for Moms and Their 21st-Century Families
She also presents learning workshops for kids, parents and teachers at schools, museums and libraries. Find links and more information at Kathy's personal website, Crafts for Learning. You can also read more about Kathy on her Google profile: Kathy Ceceri.
Kathy holds a BA in English Literature from McGill University in Montreal.
By Kathy Ceceri:
When I began my homeschooling journey I had no background or training in education. Thanks to the many helpful homeschool veterans I met and the wealth of resources available, I acquired the skills needed to help my own kids learn and grow into independent and productive young adults. Along the way, I became a passionate advocate for homeschooling and the benefits it can bring to many families and children.
Today I love talking to new or prospective homeschoolers and helping them find ways to make this lifestyle work for them. Homeschooling may not be for everyone, but for families who are interested and committed, it can be one of the most rewarding journeys they will ever take.
