Welcome to Chansen Academy’s Reading Circle! My goal is to learn as much as I can about learning, to help me support my children in achieving their dreams. I plan to do a lot of reading (hopefully a book every month!) and invite you to join me in reading, pondering, discussing, and utilizing the information we encounter to enrich our lives and learning. I am open to adjusting the schedule below… always looking to learn about new things!
