Education, social issues, parenting, relationships, art
Samantha worked in the public schools for 7 years in varying capacities. From preschool through 8th grade, as well as general education, special education, and after school. Through those experiences, she is now an enthusiastic homeschooler to her 7 year old son. She is knowledgable in state law and state curriculum standards, as well as time management, research, and curriculum building and implementation. She carries an advanced understanding of the many different styles of homeschooling, including online public school, charter school, and unschooling.
As a 30something year old woman, Samantha has experienced many types of relationships. From a decade of emotional abuse, to playing the field and enjoying casual sex, to deep and committed polyamory, she has a lot to offer in the way of making relationships work. Communication, direct honesty, and ownership over ones own feelings are at the cornerstone of her feminist perspective.
