Ms. Chaplow has been teaching at homeschool groups and co-ops for nine years across subject matters such as history, science, English grammar, Latin declensions and conjugations, math memory work, geography, and world timeline.
At CHRSM, Ms. Chaplow will be introducing IEW’s (Institute for Excellence in Writing) TWSS (Teaching Writing Structure and Style), which she has used for eight years and taught in co-ops for five years. It offers children a formulaic approach to writing making it accessible to everyone. Ms. Chaplow has a love for English grammar and the importance of clear communication. She will be weaving that into her class.
After all, Jesus Christ’s great charter to us, HIS disciples was, “ . . . Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you . . .” We’re best prepared to do this with a firm grasp on properly structured communication.
Ms. Chaplow will be including fun and interactive elements into class to introduce English grammar memory, common Greek and Latin roots, word usage, vocabulary, and more, while always illustrating these concepts with interesting and relevant historic events and stories.

While at Potomac, I taught in the accelerated full day kindergarten program for five years. The smaller class size there was sixteen students which was wonderful for allowing attention to each student. I have loved all of my experiences.
While we lived in New Zealand for two years, our children attended school but I also taught them their Loudoun academics. This was a glorious experience for all of us and shaped my children’s lives.
