This talk is retrospective of Missy’s 23-year career homeschooling 6 children K-12. Robert Frost’s poem, “After Apple Picking,” provokes reflections on the work and the fruit of Missy’s homeschooling. In this “view from the top” of the homeschooling mountain, she shares perspective for those presently engaged in the climb, fellowship for those near the summit, and a clear and urgent “call” for both.

Missy Andrews is co-director of the Center for Literary Education and a homeschooling mother of six. She is the author of Teaching the Classics: A Socratic Method for Literary Education and Wild Bells: A Literary Advent. Missy earned her BA in English from Hillsdale College and her MA in imaginative literature from Harrison Middleton University. She and her husband, Adam, live on a mountaintop in northeast Washington, where she collects children’s books and reads and reads and reads.
