About the Instructor:
Lindsey was among the first generation of classically educated students when the movement first saw its resurgence in the United States. She has since taught at the grammar and high school levels in multiple Dallas-area classical schools, homeschooled her own children, and been instrumental in founding a Charlotte Mason-based homeschool co-op. Lindsey has a M.A. in Classical Education from the University of Dallas. While studying, she interned with Dr. Angel Parham, working to integrate the black intellectual tradition into the classical canon. As part of that project, she helped formalize and develop multi-ethnic virtue-based classical curriculum. Lindsey and her family have recently started the LLF Library, a private, living-books library which offers the very best children’s literature to the Dallas-area community. Lindsey currently teaches high school level English and Literature at Providence Academy in Rockwall, TX, where she also serves as the Principal of the Upper School. Lindsey’s passions include educational philosophy, habit formation within the classroom, and the beauty of cross-curricular integration.
