We were saddened to learn of Ruth Beechick's death in late 2013. Ruth was a lifelong teacher, both in the classroom and as a curriculum writer. She was a mentor to the late Debbie Strayer, author of our Trail Guide to Learning series. Ruth's teaching philosophies heavily influenced Debbie's and helped shape the Trail Guide to Learning series. Ruth will be greatly missed. To honor Ruth and her contributions to homeschooling, we are giving away a copy of three of her books: The Three R's, You Can Teach Your Child Successfully, and Dr. Beechick's Homeschool Answer Book.

Be sure to use the Rafflecopter widget below to let us know that you’ve commented. Contest ends at 11:59 PM on Wednesday, February 5 and is open to U.S. residents only.

    These philosphies have taken me from a textbook sort of teacher to a teacher trying to create a love of learning in my children.
