Back at Home!

Hello All!

We are back at home with all three girls, using TECCA Connections Academy and following our own interests.  Our school district has given the girls the best elementary and middle school education we could ask for, but with COVID and all the mess that comes with it, we are home.  We will enter 2020-2021 with two 7th graders and a High School Freshman.  Yes, that much time has past since I posted here!

Wasn't this a Montessori blog?  Yes, it still is!  I'm still a Montessori Teacher and Mom.  We will also be "following the child," with the Montessori Adolescent Philosophy.
This year we will:
  • Follow their interests in unit studies 
    • Biology, Zoology, Geography, Politics, Health, Yoga, etc.
  • Entrepreneurship
    • each learner has chosen a side business to develop
      • henna tubes
      • slime
      • babysitting
  • Community Action Projects
    • Girl Scouts
    • Community Gardening
    • Food Bank
    • Tutoring services
  • Family-focused homesteading
    • care of environment 
    • care of self
    • care of family
    • care of pets
    • care of friendships
"But, above all it is the education of adolescents that is important, because adolescence is the time when the child enters on the state of manhood (WOMANHOOD) and becomes a member of society." (From Childhood to Adolescence, p. 60)


The adolescent must never be treated as a child, for that is a stage of life that he has surpassed. It is better to treat an adolescent as if he had greater value than he actually shows than as if he had less and let him feel that his merits and self-respect are disregarded.
Dr. Maria Montessori
