Mandee runs a small home-school where academics and the arts are inseparable, teaching musical, artful and academic enrichment as an intrinsic and playful way of life for homeschool kids of all ages. She has an arsenal of strategic, creative ideas to make learning fun and stimulating—like using the piano to teach language arts, rhythm instruments to teach fractions, and puppet stories combined with a theatrical game to teach math and grammar. Mandee thrives as a perpetual student. She loves to paddleboard, camp, go to the beach, eat, have pajama days, read, jog the dog, and discover new music. She especially loves the brain sparks of being introduced to something completely new.
