Guest biography

Rachel Lebowitz is the owner of A Charlotte Mason Plenary, an expert on the Charlotte Mason Philosophy of Education, a Home Education Consultant, and the author of The Annotated Charlotte Mason Series and The Annotated Plutarch Series.

The philosophy behind A Charlotte Mason Plenary can be summed up in two words: Your Way.

Rachel unabashedly reminds parents that Charlotte’s philosophy is a method, not a system, and that your homeschool should be adapted to uniquely fit your family.

She has created an approach to homeschooling that meets families where they are in their homeschool journey, gives parents permission to forge their own path, and creates a homeschool that is uniquely tailored to each family’s needs.

No matter your circumstances, Rachel’s trademark approach, Charlotte Mason Your Way, can help you have a more peaceful and a more productive homeschool.

Learn how her “Charlotte Mason Your Way” approach can make your homeschool more joyful and more effective.
