Heather and an introduction
Ambleside was Charlotte Mason's school in England, and Charlotte Mason was an educator who lived in the late 1800s-early 1900s. I'm a homeschooler who follows Charlotte Mason's methods of learning, for the most part anyway. She lived in the beautiful lake district of England, and I live along a river in the 14th most populated city in the world.
NYC is where I'm raising my children, and yet I feel a kinship to a woman who never had children herself, who lived in the countryside across the ocean, and who died before my parents were born.
This blog is about my connection to Charlotte Mason, and for those of you who already know about Charlotte, you know how important connections are.
