I’m Unschooled. Yes, I can write
“My name is Idzie Desmarais, and I’m a 22 year old lifelong learner who lives in Montreal, Quebec with my family. I’m an unschooling pagan-ish green-anarchist feminist hippie confusedly-queer woman. I’m a writer, dreamer, cook, and radical. I’m planning on someday moving to an old house somewhere rural and wild, and helping to set up a small community where I’ll live with assorted friends, cats, dogs, goats, and gardens.”

Raising Lifelong Learners

Hi! I’m Colleen, gifted specialist, educational consultant, author, speaker, and homeschool mom of four gifted/twice-exceptional kids. Grab a cup of coffee, some of that chocolate you’re hiding from the kids, and join me as I learn, experiment, and explore with my kiddos — and hopefully inspire you a little in your journey alongside smart, quirky, creative kids, too!
