Bits, Bobs, and the First Day of Spring

Registration Updates <   >  We are almost, but not quite, at the minimum registration numbers for both summer classes: Economics and Informal Logic.

Registration… Round Three!

As you’ve probably already hear, pre-registration has opened with Bright Ideas Press. . . Huzzah! (I’m so sorry for this (slightly) delayed notice.

The highlights include: 1. You pre-register now, paying $35 for your family and choosing your classes.

Registration. . . . Round One!

Registration… Round One! I offer the classes I teach independently at “tiered” pricing. That means that I ask you to be honest about what you can afford to pay. If God’s in charge of your budget, totally ask Him : ) Then simply choose your price level. If you’ve been blessed and can afford to pay more, great. If you have eight kids and one of them just totaled your car, well, you might need to pay the small

Summer & Fall Class Info… Finally!

I know that you all have been eager for details, and I am so sorry for the delay! Without going into details, let’s just say that these past couple of weeks have been filled with snowstorms, canine interment, Chilean wildfires, bureaucracy, and teaching : ) I have been spending quite a bit of time talking to, and evaluating, platforms for the upcoming school year. You have all been so flexible this semester and taken the lack of t

Not only in paying promptly but in your kind emails and notes. Everyone has been so gracious and understanding of the fact that my “teacher” hat trumps all of the “administration” and “tech support” hats I am suddenly wearing. Thank you. [2] Week 1, or W
