Hi! I’m Shasta, a laid back, yet kinda crazy, untraditional mom to 6 amazing kids. I consider myself a Gypsypreneur, as I've traveled and Roadschooled across the US with my kids creating my own life, my own income, and their own personalized learning journey. I’m living life NOW, WITH my kids, while helping parents navigate the world of education in a way that helps kids find their passions, chase their dreams and become everything they were created to be.
I've been where you are: overwhelmed, questioning if I could really teach my kids better than public schools can, desperately trying to find all the answers to defend my decision to skeptical friends and family that don't understand, while trying to navigate through a sea of information online.
The good news is, you are not alone.
The better news? YOU CAN do this!
You ARE the best option for your child(ren) which is why I've poured myself into creating the Freedom Education Movement. My mission is to empower families by offering tools, resources, support, and courses for both parents and students that focus first on nurturing self-esteem and a resilient mindset.
As an adventurous mom of many, my kids have experienced a spectrum of educational methods: public, private, and home schooling. Through these experiences, I've discovered the profound impact of student-led, interest-based, RELAXED education which many refer to as Eclectic Homeschooling or Unschooling. It emphasizes family connection, tailored learning styles, mindset cultivation, and passion-driven education.
With over 20 years of teaching experience, both in-person and online, I'm more confident than ever that students MUST experience a transformative approach to learning that fosters mental, emotional, and academic growth in order to make it in the world we live in today.
