Zara Fagen, PhD firmly believes that you don’t have to choose between educational success and sanity while homeschooling – you can have both by decluttering your child’s education.  

Zara applies her unique brand of analysis and reproducible results that she gained as a neurobiologist to teach other homeschoolers how to be awesome at homeschooling, instead of trying to be it all. 

Zara keeps things as simple as possible in Indiana with her husband, 4 children, and 3 businesses.  She is a recovering perfectionist, proud science geek, and aspiring snowbird.
