Homeschooling in the Desert with Intention and Hope and Special Needs


Hello, so glad you came to visit.

I am a mother to 2 wonderful boys. an artist, and a Montessori teacher and advocate.

My youngest son and I have come home to “homeschool” after 6 joyful years teaching in a 3-6 Montessori classroom and for him, 6 miserable years in the “train wreck” of public special education programs (6 different classrooms), after he left the Montessori classroom to “receive better services” as was advised in order to receive more services.   Hence the title of my blog, my project4peace.  I could no longer enjoy the beauty and peace of my own classroom knowing that he was experiencing daily misery and chaos in his school setting.  So now we find a peaceful approach, or at least attempt to find way to a peaceful approach full hands on projects.  I am creating a Montessori “all-years homeschool”  that will meet the needs of my 13 year old son, who has a variety of obstacles to his learning. I hope through what we learn, we can pass on to others that would like embark on a similar journey or just need a little support. Enjoy your visit, tell a friend, and join the conversation.

As we seem to value the results of education for their measurableness, so we tend to undervalue and at last ignore those results which are too intrinsically valuable to be measured.

— Edmond G. A. Holmes,
chief inspector of elementary schools for Great Britain, 1911
