I'm so glad you're here!
Read a little about me, and the wonderful homeschool parents you'll find throughout Learn Through Living.
Hi! Thanks so much for stopping by!
My name is Jami and I am the Mama behind Learn Through Living. I am also the founder of Eunoia Homeschool Magazine; a FREE monthly magazine dedicated to showcasing Homeschool real life. Each month I also interview either a homeschool parent, or a homeschooled child.
I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband, who I have loved for more than half my life, and our two amazingly different yet wonderful children. Their 10 year age gap means I am homeschooling at a pre K and year 10 level. It’s definitely an interesting journey, which has lead me to some incredibly places over the past 7 years.
I developed a homeschool planner out of a desperate need to record our learning adventures, whilst also ensuring I was meeting my state’s reporting criteria. I found it incredibly difficult to translate what we were learning naturally, into the language of the education department. Fast-forward just over 2 years, and I now have the 2019 Adventures Planner, as well as the 2019/2020 | Perpetual | Adventures planner.
Before the planners were born, I developed activity worksheets for my daughter who was in grade 5 at the time, because we were both frustrated with what was available online. It was incredibly difficult to find an engaging worksheet that promoted creative thinking and expression in their answers, and thus the Wonder Sheets were born.
I have dealt with anxiety and panic attacks, and through that process learned the strength and power of both positive mindset and growth mindset. This lead to my passion of teaching homeschool Mama’s how they can have a positive mindset in regards to their recording process, in a kind, patient and nurturing way.
I am passionate about supporting and helping homeschool parents shift their mindset around recording and enjoying their homeschool journey.
All of these significant details have shaped me to be the woman I am today, but none really tell you about me.
I decided to do something a little different and asked a couple friends to describe me in 3 words.
I’d like to give you a clear picture of the person I am through another person’s eyes. I’ve chosen a person who has known me for many years, and one who has known me for a quarter of that time. I hope this gives you a better picture of who I am.
