In the past two weeks, two former students died, leaving an indescribable grief that runs through our corner of the NYC homeschool world. Daniel Zuzworsky, “Class of 2016” was a kind, gentle presence, a talented actor and singer, and dazzlingly creative. He loved MTG and DnD, and was one of the deepest thinkers I’ve ever…

Homeschoolers take IDOMENEO
Students from my Ancient Greek Civ classes attended Idomeneo, and will attend Medea next week! I didn’t have exposure to opera until I was well into my adult years.

Our return to museum based classes was glorious. My classes for homeschoolers…

Wrapping up 2022
Cheers to a spectacular year! We didn’t know what going back in person would look like, but it looked amazing: in person classes, zoom for those who couldn’t make it, parties, picnics, open mics and the inauguration of the restored museum classes. Graduation was so moving that I still can’t find the words to describe…
