Unschool When You Can, Teach When You Must with Kate Laird

Kate is the author of Homeschool Teacher, a manual for homeschooling families for kindergarten through eighth grade and available through SEA Books & More.

Kate graduated from Harvard with a degree in history, a good set of study skills, and a 100-ton captain’s license. Her first teaching job began seven days after graduation, tutoring three children on a sailboat crossing the Pacific. For the last 12 years, she’s homeschooled her own children as the family worked and traveled on the edges of civilization from Greenland to Antarctica and now in Alaska. You can follow her blog here.

She’ll be discussing how to combine elements of unschooling and classical education.
