Interest Led Learning

Stop bringing the school system into your homeschool. Download this free PDF guide to help.


Home education isn't about teaching our kids everything they need to know for the rest of their lives. It's about guiding our kids into learning on their own, giving them the tools they need to make discoveries and solve problems, and creating space for them to think critically about new ideas.

Why interest led learning?

Just in case we haven't quite been introduced before...

I'M jess, former teacher turned homeschool mom of five boys, from kindergarten to high school.

My family and I live on a small homestead in SE Wisconsin, where we have gardens and lots of chickens. I love to sew, cook mostly from-scratch food for my family from my well-stocked pantry, and spend time outside with my fam. I also love helping other moms start homeschooling – so you can learn from all the things I’ve done well and not-so-well over the last 11+ years homeschooling my five kids.
