I have a degree in computer science, but I left the corporate programmer world in 1996 to be a stay at home mom after my son was born. I spent the next 20 years as a homeschool mom. During those years, I taught myself web design and I wrote homeschool curriculum that won awards and sold worldwide. I taught many moms how to teach their own kids, and I've taught everything from the alphabet to advanced math courses. Teaching is my passion, right next to quilting. This 'baby boy' accompanied me to my very first quilting class when he was four months old. He rocked away in the swing while I learned to rotary cut! We share a Halloween birthday, and his age is how I keep up with how long I've been quilting.
