April graduated from Samford (Sam, not Stan!) University in Birmingham, Alabama, with a degree in Human Development and Family Studies. Said degree has come in quite handy since she and Guy welcomed 6 children into their lives in their first 10 years together. With toddlers and teens around, there’s no shortage of activity - or noise! - in her little yellow house.
April implemented the Brave Writer Lifestyle in Hensley Hall several years ago. The results were staggering. And so was the Love Affair. By simply practicing the Brave Writer Values on her own children, the Love grew into a full-blown Language Arts Liberation. April eagerly shared this shiny, new-found treasure with co-op classes she created across the elementary, middle and high school spectrum. She has spent the last 5 years leading a homeschool support group with monthly meetings tackling a laundry list of topics near-and-dear to the mama’s heart, while gently nudging their growth in self confidence and community. Understanding the Homeschool Mama and the trench from which she does her Language Arts battle is April’s mission - because math isn’t! Drawing on a decade of homeschool experience and an insatiable appetite for “just the right word,” she’s ready for Kidswrite Basic online classes.
