CATHY FLOWERS: A home educator for over two decades, I am the proud mom to four graduates.   I studied the Great Books and philosophy from a classical perspective at San Jose State University in California, earning a B.A. degree in English.

I have extensively studied and used Christian classical educational theory in my home and classes.  I teach writing and literature classes to homeschool students using the Institute for Excellence in Writing® methods.
 Having been involved with competitive speech and debate for a decade, I believe strongly in speech and presentation skills, so we practice this in all my classes. 

Passionate about the need for clear communication in writing and presentation skills, I strive to help all my pupils become competent, creative, and concise, yet winsome writers.  I am an Institute for Excellence in Writing® Certified Instructor and Level C (high school) IEW Online Instructor.
