Blair Lee M.S
Founder of SEA Homeschoolers and Author
Blair Lee M.S. is the founder of Secular Eclectic Acacdemic Homeschoolers and author of <em>The Science of Climate Change: A Hands-On Course and </em>for the critically acclaimed R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey Series. Blair has been handcrafting the education of her non-linear thinker for over 11 years. During that time, she has learned as much about how learning happens from him as he has learned from her. Blair is a passionate advocate of innovative academics using secular materials. Through her speaking and writing, her goal is to empower homeschoolers to dare to be innovative and create something unique and academically-rich when handcrafting their child’s journey through learning. One of Blair’s ancestors was probably a hobbit, and she loves nothing more than to have people drop by and have tea, coffee, or homemade sangria while eating second breakfasts, elevenses, or tea. Blair loves to read, cook, laugh, hang out with friends, and travel.

He has his degree in Cultural Anthropology, is an ordained Humanist Celebrant, and is certifiably the biggest Disney nerd you will ever encounter.

Kat Hutcheson is a regular contributor on the Secular, Eclectic, Academic Homeschoolers website, social media manager, and the PR point person for the Secular, Eclectic, Academic conference. She was homeschooled by her father, a disabled veteran who wasn’t afraid to color outside the lines and inspired a lifelong love of learning. She loved homeschooling so much she couldn’t wait to homeschool her own kids. Her kids are 12 and 2. Homeschooling her 2E high school student while chasing a two year old around present a unique set of challenges and rewards, and there’s never a dull moment. She is an avid bibliophile whose kids have inherited her book addiction. She uses an eclectic mix of homeschooling styles often creating her own curriculum to meet her children’s various needs and interests. Her goal is to encourage her kids to be lifelong learners who aren’t afraid to try and fail and try again. All of which is only made possible by drinking massive amounts of her favorite drink, coffee.
Nadine is a homeschooling mom to two kids, author/creator at Up Above The Rowan Tree, and the Blog/Newsletter Editor for Secular Eclectic Academic Homeschoolers. Nadine always planned to home educate her children, but following a divorce when her two children were young, she opted to place them in public school. Quickly realizing that this wasn’t the best fit for her kids, she made the decision to homeschool. In her years as a home educator, Nadine has realized that it can be difficult to navigate as a secular homeschooler – and finding community and support through the SEA Homeschoolers groups has helped her be successful. Nadine’s family primarily educates following Charlotte Mason’s philosophy, but she’s above all a strong advocate for families crafting a unique and personalized education for their kids.
In addition to writing at Up Above The Rowan Tree, Nadine has contributed articles to the SEA Homeschoolers blog and Home School Life Magazine’s blog. Nadine also speaks at conferences, both online and in person, about her experiences as a ‘Charlotte Mason renegade’ and her life as the anxious mom to an anxious kiddo.
Fueled by coffee, addicted to books, and with a huge helping of laughter – Nadine is excited to continue supporting and encouraging other secular homeschool bloggers on their journeys!
