About Me...

  My name is Kerry Jones, and I am a writer, homeschooling mom, and techie-wanna-be "living the dream" in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.  I write extensively about integrating homeschooling and technology, learning styles, assistive technology, and homeschooling trends.  Feel free to explore this website to find links to my online articles, information about my favorite homeschooling resources, and more info on homeschooling in the 21st century!

Background


At age four my neighbor friend and I "wrote" our own newspaper and attempted to sell it door to door.  By age eight, I was spending my afternoons doing word search puzzles and playing Scrabble with anyone who would oblige me.  At eleven, my dad and I would spend afternoons trying to stump each other with random words from the dictionary.  My teenage years were filled with journaling, short stories, and letters to the editor.  So it isn't hugely surprising that when it came time to declare a major in college I would settle on writing.  And over the years, my obsession with words has simply gotten stronger...

Topsy-Techie


My love of everything "techie" appeared almost simultaneously with my obsession with language.  You might think that language and technology are incongruous, but that just means you've never spent hours playing "Text Twist" on your laptop!  If it beeps, blinks, or is written in html, I'm a fan.  Now don't get me wrong...I didn't say I was techie, I said I appreciate technology.  There is a HUGE difference.  While I'm in awe of the 21st century, and have a huge fascination with all things gadgetry, my feeble attempts to join the ranks of geekdom have earned me the beloved moniker "Topsy-Techie."  But hey...everyone has to start somewhere.
