"Hi! I'm Amanda L. We've homeschooled from the beginning, and this is our 6th year using MP. I majored in classical languages, and I love sharing the ancient world with my three boys and many other students."

Anne will be leading third grade literature. This will be her fourth year moderating with Vita Beata. She has been homeschooling for seven years. She enjoys children's literature and isn't ashamed to admit that she still borrows picture books from the library. Outside of homeschooling, she also teaches science and Lego Robotics.

"I’m Christy. This is my seventh year moderating Memoria Press discussion groups. I have moderated both classical studies and literature. We started our schooling experience at the main Highlands Latin School in Louisville, but a job change forced us to move. We knew there was nothing like an HLS education, so we went straight from going to the school to homeschooling with Memoria Press materials. For the ‘22-23 school year I will be homeschooling 12th, 10th, 7th, and 4rd grade boys. I also spend a lot of time teaching at our coop, where I get to put my lawyer hat back on to teach classes like Intro to Law, Mock Trial, and Constitution."






Julie will be moderating 5th Grade American Studies, 7th Grade Literature, and 9th Grade History: Julie is a long time homeschooling mom of many. She has twenty years of experience; six of those with Memoria Press full core. Julie was drawn to MP through their literature guides and enjoys walking with students through the wonderful literature selections. This will be Julie’s fourth year moderating with Vita Beata.

Kristi is a pastor’s wife and is in her ninth year of homeschooling. She loves reading and learning alongside her two children. She blogs about family and faith, especially about homeschooling and trusting God in hard times at www.thissideofheavenblog.com.





Hi, I'm Ryane (pronounced 'Ryan') and I am excited to have the opportunity to moderate the Famous Men of the Middle Ages group again for the 2022-2023 academic year. This is our 13th year homeschooling and our 7th year using Memoria Press. During that time I've taught Latin, composition, grammar, geography, and history both online and at our local co-op. I love that homeschooling gives me the opportunity to learn alongside my students. I live in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains with my husband, 4 children, and our labrador retriever, Daisy.
