HSP 011 Trina Holden: All in the Family

Trina Holden knew quite a bit about homeschooling before she even started homeschooling her own kids. That’s because she was homeschooled herself. Now she and her husband (who was also homeschooled — see a trend?) continue the family tradition.

Trina’s own homeschool experience was a unique blend of Charlotte Mason and pioneer-style unschooling, which created in her an entrepreneurial spirit. Though her methods are sometimes different (but not always) from her mom’s, she is still striving for the same end — kids who grow to be life-long learners. This is a fun one!
