Is classical education only for our elite students or is there something for all of our students?
Cindy Rollins is the 2016 winner of the Russell Kirk Paideia Prize and the author of Mere Motherhood: Morning Time, Nursey Rhymes, and My Journey toward Sanctification (2016). She was a homeschooling mom of 9 (8 boys and 1 girl) who attended Stetson University and Toccoa Falls College. She was drawn towards homeschooling after hearing Raymond Moore in his original Focus on the Family Broadcast in the early 1980's. For over ten years, she blogged through her efforts to homeschool under the classical principles of Charlotte Mason, and she can now be found blogging for The CiRCE Institute where she also hosts The Mason Jar, a Charlotte Mason/Classical Education podcast. While her heart’s desire is to encourage moms, she has a special concern for those raising sons. She lives in Chattanooga, Tennessee with her husband, Tim, their dog, Max, and however many children happen to be home.
