CM_logoWelcome to my Charlotte Mason website.

I started using Charlotte Mason’s ideas in my homeschool in 1994. It has been an amazing journey. I hope you’ll join me in this journey in your own homeschool.

For years, I have been sharing how to incorporate Charlotte Mason by presenting workshops and a multimedia seminar, “Charlotte Mason Approach to Home Education.”

I wrote the original Charlotte Mason Study Guide in 1997 because I wanted to share Charlotte Mason’s own words with busy homeschool moms and show how to apply those principles in education at home. Then after 10 more years of experience using Miss Mason’s idea with my children, I wrote an expanded 2nd edition of the Charlotte Mason Study Guide with the deeper understanding I had gained.

I presented at Utah Home Education Association’s 36th annual convention on June 11, 2016 in Sandy, Utah.
There seems to be a renewed interest in Charlotte Mason. I will be presenting two or three seminars in the Salt Lake valley this summer. I am also offering 3-day Nature Journaling classes. The first session is June 21-23 from 10-noon in Taylorsville. There will be at least one more session later in the summer, probably July 19-21. Email me, if interested.


Charlotte Mason Study Guide introduces you to the educational approach to education developed by Charlotte Mason, an influential educator in England (1842-1923). This printable e-book contains hundreds of excerpts from Mason’s six-volume set so you can read exactly what she had to say. And current writings by Penny Gardner will show you how to apply Charlotte Mason’s ideas in today’s home schools. This book stands on its own or may be used as you read Charlotte’s tomes.
