Truth, Goodness, & Beauty Today
The freedom and fruit produced through a Classical liberal arts education is too important for good teachers to wade in frustration around how to learn and master this craft!

The Fellowship is one place you can learn and practice.

“My time spent in the Fellowship is birthing in me a new paradigm for how I teach, and for how I consider my everyday moments. I’ve been drawn to the beauty and philosophy of educating my children within the great tradition, and Jen’s coaching is opening up for me an expanded understanding of the roles of hospitality and humility in the quest to embody a spirit of inquiry.”
"The Fellowship has transformed not only my life and instruction style but also the lives of the children I teach. I have been able to effectively apply what I have learned in real life. A few of those lessons and experiences are: freedom in exploring new ideas, confidence in asking questions and providing feedback, honed my craft of teaching using the tools of atmosphere, liturgy, and forms, developed a deeper love of the content I teach, learning to trust myself and the process on the path to mastery, developed a daily practice of mindful observation to see how to create harmony in a given situation. I learned how to exchange micromanaging outcomes and results motivated toward perfection for a graced filled integrated learning experience for the children and the teacher.”
