Kim and Gabrielle Linnell are an amazing mother-daughter duo we invited on the show to share how Brave Writer — and homeschooling in general — has shaped their understanding of education.

 

Gabrielle is 25 and was homeschooled for about nine years, also spending time in private and public schools. She currently works at Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C., as the digital projects associate, where she gets to work on awesome digital initiatives relating to Shakespeare and his world.

 

Gabrielle’s mom, Kim, has taught English as a second language for more than 20 years to international students in schools and universities, both in America and abroad… but she describes the 10 years she homeschooled her four daughters as the high water mark of her career.

We were first introduced to Christina Celebi in the height of live streaming broadcasts like Periscope, and we were immediately attracted to her contagious passion and sparkle. We sat down to talk with her because her family have made a brave decision: they have taken their homeschool on the road abroad!

 

Christina immediately fell in love with the freedom that homeschooling created for her family. That independence, mixed with her and her husband’s wanderlust, took root and blossomed into what she calls “World Schooling.”

 

Christina shares how World Schooling changes her homeschooling experience, how she travels on a budget, and how you can start World Schooling if you’ve never travelled before.
