We are excited to announce the Charlotte Mason Educational Retreat 2022 Plenary speaker!
Nancy Kelly lives in a little town on the prairie called Windom, Minnesota. She and her husband Kent have home-educated their six children for 27 years using the principles and practices of Charlotte Mason. After meeting and listening to Susan Schaeffer Macaulay speak on education at the 1994 L’Abri Conference in Rochester, MN, she decided to wholeheartedly pursue this way of learning and living.
Nancy has helped build a thriving educational community in southwest Minnesota that continues to learn and grow. She started the Parents’ Midwest Educational Union (PMEU), a parents’ book discussion group; Truth, Beauty, Goodness (TBG), a student learning cooperative; and the Living Education Retreat, now in its 16th year of sharing and spreading the ideas of Charlotte Mason. 16 years ago she began sharing her knowledge and experience across the country speaking on Charlotte Mason’s philosophy at conferences and retreats. She is a sought-after educational consultant and mentor and feels fully alive when teaching about the CM philosophy. Her group mentoring classes, Living Education Lessons, consistently sell out.
A trip with Kent and dear friends to Ambleside, England in 2014 forever changed her understanding of Mason’s teacher training and deepened her love for Mason’s relational philosophy. She returned in 2018 and hopes to go back soon.
Nancy has a Bachelor of Science in Multidisciplinary Studies with cognates in English and Education from Liberty University. She is a book rescuer and has republished several inspiring texts important to the CM community. You can read her blog and other doings at her website, Sage Parnassus. She enjoys family, ‘bright eyes’, flower gardening, exploring the flora and fauna of new places, and of course…books. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
