My name is Shelli Bond Pabis. For over seven years, I wrote a newspaper column about daily life, homeschooling and motherhood. My non-fiction has appeared in numerous publications as well as on the local radio.
This work led me to be invited to become the Senior Editor at home / school / life magazine, which I helped launch in the Spring of 2014. I have contributed dozens of articles, columns, and other work to this magazine and blog. I’m happy to see that the work I did there continues to inspire people.
My main focus is homeschooling my two boys, which I do in partnership with my husband. As a history professor, he's been extremely supportive of giving our boys an excellent education at home because he's had experience teaching students who had been homeschooled before college.
I have written my personal blog, Mama of Letters, for over ten years, and there I have chronicled my experiences homeschooling my two boys. As my boys get older, the blog has turned into a monthly journal, and I'm sharing the nitty gritty of our homeschool course of study in PDF form, which I sell here in my store. As time permits, I have other ideas percolating for PDF resources that I hope will be a source of inspiration and help for other homeschooling families.
Homeschooling has given me the chance to get the education I always wanted, and I have found that living a life full of curiosity and exploration makes me a happy person. I hope it will do the same for you, but feel free to contact me if you want to bounce educational ideas for your kids off of me and get my perspective. I don't necessarily think homeschooling is always the best choice.
I don't charge anything for email chats, but if you'd like to support my work, buying a resource in my store or sharing these resources on your social media sites would be greatly appreciated. Or you can simply email me to let me know if my work is beneficial. Your emails keep me motivated. Thank you!
