We have been thrilled with Ms. Christine’s class California Out of the Box. She interweaves science and history with living books and hands on activities. She is warm, patient and enthusiastic. Not only is this a high quality curriculum, Ms. Christine knows just how to motivate my 9 year old son to happily write paragraphs! What a gift it to have the author teaching the material the way she envisioned! Her curriculum is already fantastic, but if your child has the chance to take the class in person, grab it!-Charis (mom of 9 year old boy)
Christine will offer several online classes. Pick your day…it’s gonna be fun!
Charter school funds (Home School Coaches): accepted for Pathfinders and online class(es). (The Pathfinders class will start online, and may transition to in-person later in the year.)
