I'm Speaking for LEGO® Education!

My name is Mary Prather.  I am a wife to Hal, mother of Anna and Grant, musician, educator, and homeschool mom.

My background is in music and public education.   I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music and a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership and Supervision.   I've taught in public schools for 10 years and now homeschool my children.

All of my experiences to this point have uniquely equipped me as a homeschooling parent.   It is a blessing to be able to write about our journey and encourage others to adopt this wonderful lifestyle.  

I am also the author of a music appreciation curriculum for children. SQUILT (Super Quiet UnInterrupted Listening Time) is designed to make bringing quality music into your homeschool or classroom easy, affordable, and enjoyable. 

I am a member of the iHomeschool Network, a blogging network that connects bloggers to brands and vice versa. We are 100 members strong and work together to promote  the very best resources and ideas for our homeschooling readers.
