Shelli Bond Pabis has written a weekly column for the Barrow Journal on motherhood, homeschooling, and life stories for over three years. She has published nonfiction in Athens Magazine, Georgia Backroads, and she has read several nonfiction essays on Georgia Public Radio.
Shelli is married to a history professor, and she has two boys, born in August 2006 & 2009. Before she was married, she lived and traveled to many places, including Japan and London on work abroad programs. She loves reading, writing, photography, gardening, and being out in nature.
Mama of Letters is her personal blog in which she chronicles her family’s homeschooling journey, shares tidbits of daily life, photography, and her newspaper columns. She also offers a series titled Worthy Reads which links to some of the many homeschooling articles found in the media. In the series Inspire Kids, she shares videos that she has found on the web to inspire her children. If her children like it, maybe yours will too!
Shelli calls her homeschool relaxed, eclectic, project-based and mostly child-led. She makes use of storytelling on a daily basis. She hopes to convince all parents of the merits of telling their own stories to their children. Click here for resources on how to do that. (See FAQ for more information about her homeschool.)
She hopes that this site will serve as a resource for anybody thinking about homeschooling, and she welcomes anyone to e-mail her.
Shelli is also a photographer, and you can view more of her work here.
