About me

My name is Daniela Ginta. I am many things: freelance writer and homeschooling mom, scientist (MSc in Biochemistry, SFU 2002) and environmentalist, dentist and haircut go-to person, healer when needed (family only!), referee and highly skilled negotiator. The latter on a good day.

First of all, I am a human. Always aiming to understand what life is about, often struggling to make sense of what seems to make no sense whatsoever, and learning every day that gratefulness, though a mere concept, is one that provide a solid ground to stand on. Which I need for when grace is required. That would be daily, as every parent knows.

Some days are better then others but they all have a common denominator: we learn from each of them. Homeschooling goes well with parenting; they are both humbling and amazingly uplifting at the same time.

This blog will be following our journey through homeschooling. You’ll read about great days and low days, about things that work just fine and then you’ll read about hurdles. You will read about those days when everything but homeschooling seems to work, and then you will read about why we are still at it. Because in the end this is one of the things we’re here to learn about: how to not give up, more so when the uphill seems to be slippery and at a perfect 90 degree angle.

I’d be honoured to have you learn alongside and share your thoughts. Thank you.
