Mil Gracias!

A thousand thanks to Jeremy & Arooba! I’ve been listening to your podcasts for 1 & 1/2 years now & find something to connect to with each of your guests. I teach at Founders Classical Academy of Lewisville, Texas. Each week I am motivated to keep persevering in teaching the Good, the True and the Beautiful after hearing from these “shakers & movers” not only from our country but around the world!
I also love that we now have a classical standardized test to offer our high-schoolers!
Keep up this wonder-filled work.
Thank you! D. Mallona

Inspiring talk from Dr. Anika Prather

This was the first time I’ve tuned into this podcast, and I found myself quite inspired by Dr. Anika Prather. After 20 years working in the public schools, I’ve become curious about classical education as an alternative. Her talk deepened my desire to learn more.
