Cindy West, M. Ed. has homeschooled her three children (16, 12, 6) from the very beginning. As a former public school teacher, she knew there had to be a better way to instill a love for learning in children. Thankfully, she learned about the Charlotte Mason style of homeschooling early on, and it’s been the perfect fit for her family. Besides a love for learning, she and her children have also found the CM style to be very rigorous, yet gentle and easy to adapt at the same time. Cindy often shares her passion for this method of homeschooling at Our Journey Westward and has created several curriculum resources that fit well with the CM style at Shining Dawn Books.
