Who I AmMy name is Michelle Cannon. I'm a single mom of five beautiful people ranging in age from 14 to 32 years of age. I've been homeschooling since 1999, when I pulled my son out of public school. Having graduated four kids, I am currently homeschooling the last of my five kids. Lorelai is now 15 years old and I'll be sharing her journey through high school.
I was born in Tennessee and grew up in Florida. Yep, I'm a southern girl to the core, from the way I speak to the foods I eat. I love the great outdoors and have a profound respect for nature. I enjoy hiking, learning everything I can about native plants and animals here in Florida, and living an eco-friendly lifestyle.
I am all about natural mothering (some call this being a crunchy mom). I homeschool my kids using the Charlotte Mason method, but support all homeschooling styles.
My WorkUntil October 2000, I taught parenting and child development classes for the local school board and domestic violence shelter. Since then, I've studied holistic nutrition, aromatherapy, and herbalism, which led me to starting a green, aromatherapy cleaning service in 2004.
I wear many hats these days.
Here at The Heart of Michelle, I offer the following:
- provide blogging and brand ambassador services.
- homeschool and parenting consultations.
- support to families living with bipolar disorder.
Outside of this blog, I work as a social media community manager for businesses.
