I haven't been posting much on the blog and have only recently started to update the website again. This last year has been a difficult one for me. I think I have rewritten this post three times!
My dad was diagnosed with a brain tumor last January and I have been making the 5 hour drive to visit him and my mom at least once a month, and sometimes more. During Holy Week last year I also started having health issues myself---fatigue, dizziness, memory loss, and mental processing issues. I found out in June that I had high lead levels and we moved out of our house for two months until the house was cleaned and more of the renovations were done. I modified my diet and I stepped back from working on Byzantine Beginnings and some other projects.
Thankfully, I have been feeling better the last few months although I still have lapses. My dad has had a long battle with cancer that doesn't seem likely to continue much longer. I am thankfully that we had this time with him though.
Anyway, I am hoping to get more done here in 2016. The level 1 materials are almost ready. I think! I keep adding more to this level which creates more work for me. I also have started to get a better idea of what is to come in the next levels. These changes are reflected on the website. If you go to the Materials tab and then the Level 1 tab you can read a little more about the specifics.
I am starting to create the support materials now---written guides, videos and recordings and those will be going up in the next month or two I hope.
I will also be selling my materials at a few venues this summer and hope to make them available for purchase online in the next few months. I considered selling them through the Game Crafter (where many of them are produced) but there are a number of issues that makes that undesirable to me. So, at this point I am considering Amazon or selling through my own website.
I created a Facebook page a few weeks ago and have started connecting with people there as well.
SAHM by day; ByzB curriculum developer by night. My career was in teaching: kindergarten, first grade, bilingual reading, Suzuki piano, and Music Mind Games. Now I paint icons and spend lots of time making materials on the computer. My greatest joy is directing my students in their learning. This blog documents the process and provides a space for my other ramblings as well.
