Intentional Mothers by Ms. Nancy Fertig

This year was a journey for both myself and my 10 year-old grand daughter. Her mom devoted herself to making sure she and her older sister had the best education possible, and that education was delivered through Class Link. Class Link is a shared partnership in education between three days a week of homeschool and two days a week of class room studies. 

While my daughter was an expert at this, I was not. There was so much to learn in order to make sure my grand daughter had the best education. My journey would have been in vain had it not been for her teacher, Mrs. Avery, and one of the most caring, most committed to home schooling, and the most dedicated woman to the idea that parents have a role in their child's education I have met--Mrs. Nancy Fertig. Nancy teaches parents how to partner with the school and become the educators their kids need. She is an outspoken advocate of a shared partnership between teachers and parents in education. This is her tribute to the "Intentional Mothers" who devote their time and energy to their families and their communities.

"Mothers are people who set their care on others, showing good will toward the ones the mothers are concerned about without expecting to be reimbursed with any form of currency. Mothers maintain their caring even when the object of their care and concern tries their patience. Mothers show the full spectrum of love in order to build up theobject of their concern, and thereby cause that object of their concern to achieve hi or her purpose. Mothers "mother" at great cost to themselves. Mothers "mother" within their family and their communities."
