    E102: Advocating For A Change In Education with Author Suzanne DeMallie

    E102: Advocating For A Change In Education with Author Suzanne DeMallie

    Hello and welcome back to the campfire! Today we have Suzanne DeMallie joining us.  Suzanne is an Author, CPA turned Educator, Advocate, and mom to three. As a parent, she fought a nationwide battle against bureaucracy for the simple, common-sense idea that children in the back of a classroom should be able to hear their teacher. Now, as a teacher herself, she is speaking loud and clear, fighting public-school dysfunction on the inside.
    Suzanne’s book, Can You Hear Me Now?, walks parents and teachers through everything they need to know to make a difference in their local district and beyond.
    So grab a seat by the fire as we travel to Baltimore to discuss the decline of the education system and the importance of advocating for a change!

    E101: Chasing Dreams In A Hectic Life

    E101: Chasing Dreams In A Hectic Life

    Hello and welcome back to the campfire! Today I speak on a topic that has always been important to Nathan and I. It's one that many parents may place on the back burner as we just try to juggle every day life of parenting and responsibilities. We all need to have a big picture of where we would like to see our life headed...on a personal as well as on a family level. Parenting never quite slows down regardless of us thinking, 'maybe in the next stage, I'll find more time'. Instead we need to change our mindset and think, 'how can we make this work?' What shifts need to occur when I know this can bring a greater good?

    So grab a seat by the fire as I discuss the importance of keeping our inner flame burning!

    E100: The Magical Moments of Outdoor Learning with Madeleine and Amber from Barefoot University

    E100: The Magical Moments of Outdoor Learning with Madeleine and Amber from Barefoot University

    Hello and welcome back to the campfire! Today we have Madeleine and Amber from Barefoot University joining us. Amber and Madeleine were two homeschooling moms looking for a community to walk alongside them and their kid's zeal for nature while navigating homeschooling, parenting, and life.  
    That’s when Barefoot University was born. Barefoot University follows the forest school principles for child led outdoor exploration, risk play, and nature-based skills. Along with these principles, Madeleine and Amber aim to create strong communities of families who enjoy meeting together weekly, organize activities by focusing on yearly learning rhythms, and teach kids the importance of serving through community service projects.
    So grab a seat by the fire as we travel to the Dallas-Fort Worth area and discuss how the magic happens when kids are outdoors in nature!

Encouragement and accessible info

Lots of info for those starting out in a digestible format. Relatable and encouraging. I’ve tried loads of homeschool podcasts and this is the one I always return to.

JOJOWS ,

Great info but ….

The audio is troubling.
I can’t finish listening because it seem the mic is too close to the mouths of the speakers.
Listen to them swallow is too much and super distracting. 😣

samanthas94 ,

Helpful, engaging, and fun!

Nathan and Anita offer so much great homeschooling advice and show the lives of different types of homeschoolers. As a former homeschooled student, their perspectives are refreshing for both newbies and veteran homeschoolers.
