What's Next for Lisa Nolan of Confessions of a Montessori Mom?

Waterfall, green foliage, and mossy rocks.

My Confessions of a Montessori Mom blog was created in 2008 so I could answer pressing questions about Montessori, homeschooling, and parenting. It's now archived (AKA I've been less active here since 2021).

And my Montessori albums? My Montessori and homeschool lessons and activities for two to age nine are now available for free when you visit my sister-site

I am now retired and want to thank the online Montessori and homeschool communities for 25 years of happiness and joy.

Now what?! I'm going back to school to obtain my Veterinary Technician Certificate. I want to work in a veterinary office and help sick and injured pets. (I call it from preschool to pets.)

I will also be working one-on-one with special needs children and adults through California's IHSS program.
