Back in 2003, I was a burnt out brick and mortar private school teacher looking out across my classroom into the glazed eyes of fifteen 3rd - 5th graders sitting bored in rows of desks while I dragged them through another year's gauntlet of our boring curriculum.
At the end of the school year, I looked down at my students report cards and the figurative "bloody mess" results from the mainstream education gauntlet, of which, some of my students couldn't quite make it through, and I had to unfortunately "fail" some of them and keep them back another year. I realized that I had to find a better way.
"Test prep more!"
With the "rules" of education constantly changing and education fads like Common Core galore, I begged, "where's the joy of learning found in all of that? I got frustrated by the amount of work I put into my teaching compared with the learning results I saw in my students dreaded report cards, which I grew to loathe.
In 2017, I decided there had to be a better way, and thus, NatureGlo's eScience relaxed home and school educators MathArt and natural sciences online unit study courses and educators curriculum was born. It's jargon-less open and go PowerPoint lessons for educators and child self-paced online unit study courses, here we go!
If you're a time-strapped homeschool or unschool parent whose kiddos LOVE studying about animals and want a facilitator/tutor to guide them, you're in the right place. Or, if you're a teacher that has gotten frustrated with the mainstream education agenda and red tape to stuff every child into a one-size-fits-all, teaching to the test, and or you're sick and tired of that boxed curriculum, I've been there too. You're in the right place!
I started visiting and studying alternative schools such as Sudbury, Free Schools, and Montessori. I left the traditional teaching classroom setting to apprentice and deschool at a homeschool Open Classroom program. I started laying my own educational strategies to create a learning system that works for any homeschool parent or teacher willing to let go of the "foolish schoolish" mindset.
What I believed then: I had to do all of the leading and use coercive methods and rewards to get kids to want to learn.
What I KNOW now: Childhood learning can be easier (and faster) when you have a proven plan, customized to your child's learning interests and needs.
My name is Gloria Brooks, and I help new & stuck homeschool parents and teachers deschool using the world’s simplest and most natural learning strategy, unit studies.
We are in a new era of education, where you no longer need a brick and mortar school, a hired tutor or mis-matched teacher colleagues (been there too) to have amazing learning experiences for kids - You CAN do it yourself - facilitate kids learning either online as an independent teacher, in the classroom, or at home with your kiddos.
