About the Teacher 

Karen Glass is a homeschool mother who has taught her four children through graduation and spent over two decades delving into educational philosophy, beginning with Charlotte Mason and extending to classical educators throughout history. She has a B.A. in English, but her real education has been self-education, and her passion for education has led her to write several books, including Consider This: Charlotte Mason and The Classical Tradition, Mind to Mind (an abridgement of Charlotte Mason's Philosophy of Education), Know and Tell: The Art of Narration, In Vital Harmony: Charlotte Mason and the Natural Laws of Education, and A Thinking Love: Studies in Charlotte Mason's Home Education.
