As I homeschooled a growing family for almost 35 years, I found myself less and less satisfied with the curriculum options that were available. As a writer, I quickly found myself drawn to creating my own materials. For the longest time those materials just existed on my computer for use by my family.
Then when we opened the physical space for Creative Learning Connection in Madison, Alabama almost exactly 14 years ago, we found that other families were often interested in the materials I had been putting together. But it wasn’t until I stumbled upon the self-publishing options that CurrClick provided for my pdfs and that Amazon was offering through CreateSpace for my books as paperbacks that my materials became available to homeschoolers and other teachers, both across the U.S. and throughout the world – a truly exciting adventure! And sadly, both of those options have now gone away (CurrClick) or changed (CreateSpace merged with Kdp).
For more on the self-publishing options that I have found and embraced, see the blog post on my author website, http://catherinejaime.com/self-publishing-options/.
I’ve had so much fun writing and publishing books for so long that it will take me awhile to get most of them here on the website, but hopefully, slowly, they will appear. In the meantime, feel free to check out all of my paperback offerings on my Author Page on Amazon.
While I’ve never been a fan of “read and regurgitate” types of workbooks, I found through many years of teaching, that I really liked workbooks that required students to go in search of the answers. As a result, I produced, first for my own use and then to publish, a large number of such student books.
I have alot of different topics I like to teach about and then write about. As I get a chance, I will add pages for some of those various topics and link them here:
