Richele is a homeschool mom of 13 years who still does not own a globe. Surrounded by historical fiction, unfinished timelines, and happy students, she teaches with a Charlotte Mason flair and a sassy style. She considers herself learning on the job despite her collegiate background in educational psychology. Love moved her to become a certified Orton Gillingham reading tutor, thanks to her zany and brilliant dyslexic child. A passion for fonts and dreams of hex colors led her to graphic design where she also advises in branding. Richele's goal is to encourage homeschool moms to be confident in their quest to raise hearts and minds for God's glory. She is the owner of Under the Golden Apple Tree and co-owner of Crisp Apple Design.
