Joanne Calderwood teaches parents to teach their kids to teach themselves with excellence, motivation, and the attitude for success. As a former classroom teacher, Joanne had a meltdown when attempting to home educate her first four children with the classroom mentality. Then she began to allow her older children to work independently, and the results were so amazing that she developed a system of parenting & education which incorporates the tenets of self-mastery, mastery, and self-teaching. Results include perfect and nearly-perfect SAT scorers, and four teens (so far) who have gone on to attend their first-choice colleges on full scholarships.
The Self-Propelled Advantage is Joanne’s latest book, and her message is one of home education freedom for students and the parents who love them. She and husband Tim, owners of www.URtheMOM.com, are passionate about helping families work together to become the extraordinary crucibles they were created to be. Joanne is an author, speaker, columnist, businesswoman, and underwhelmed Mom to eight great kids, ages 10 to 23.
