Suki Wessling, writer and educator.
When I was raising my own children, I learned about the special education approach of teaching to strengths rather than focusing on weaknesses. Ever since, this has been my approach, and I believe it results in more confident, self-directed learners.
Suki Wessling is a writer of widely published poetry, fiction, and non-fiction. She has worked as a college English teacher, small press publisher, graphic designer, and journalist. Suki writes about gifted children, education, and homeschooling, with an emphasis on serving the emotional and academic needs of unusual learners. Her books, From School to Homeschool (Great Potential Press) and Exploring Homeschooling for your Gifted Learner (National Association for Gifted Children), introduce parents seeking alternative educational approaches for their gifted children to the basics of homeschooling. Her book, Homeschool with Confidence, is a goal-setting guide for teens that she uses in connection with her online goal-setting courses for teens. Suki is also the author of Hanna, Homeschooler, a chapter book. Suki teaches writing, literature, and education classes for children and adults in person and online at Athena’s Advanced Academy. She writes a blog about learning for children at http://kidblog.sukiwessling.com/ and one for adults at http://blog.sukiwessling.com/.
