Welcome to Down Home, San Luis Obispo Classical Academy’s blog! We are a classical school offering several options to make our education work for families with infants through high schoolers. Our signature hybrid program, which is part-time classroom and part-time home instruction, provides an engaging education for preschool through middle school (with full time options available). We also have a university model high school. This blog is meant to support and encourage on the home front because, in so many ways, the heart of what happens at SLO Classical Academy happens down home.

A: BS in Graphic Communication from Cal Poly

Q: What was your last job before your SLOCA life?

A: I was a freelance graphic designer and web designer before kids and SLOCA came along.

Q: What is the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?

A: I make coffee, allow it to slowly wake up my brain, and enjoy a few moments of solitude before everyone else gets up.

Q: What is your favorite local restaurant?

A: I rarely get to go, but I love Big Sky Cafe. Both Jaffa Cafe and Petra are top choices as well.

Q: What was your favorite book when you were a child?

A: Even though I made everyone else answer this question for the blog, I am really having a hard time answering it myself! Definitely the Narnia books, and the Little House on the Prairie series. I also loved The Ordinary Princess by M.M. Kaye.

Q: What is your favorite piece of literature that we've read at SLOCA? 

A: I have too many favorites. I'm especially fond of all the fantastic Kindergarten literature and I will probably never part with those books. Reading The Golden Goblet again was just as wonderful as I remember it four years ago. Family read-alouds that stand out are The Witch of Blackbird Pond, The Adventures of Robin Hood, Treasure Island, and Elijah of Buxton, and I loved reading Unbroken when the high schoolers read it last year.
