Let's give the people we love most the gift of knowledge.
Here are a few of the many options:
These are just a few of the 100s of courses Masterclass offers.

Because we are huge fans of family fondue nights, when I heard about Raclette, I knew I had to give it a try.
I knew we needed to have a family raclette dinner!
“Raclette” is the name of a semi-hard Swiss cheese which, for centuries, was thickly sliced and then melted over a fire. Now, of course, we can bag the fire and use a special grill to melt the cheese and make the meal.
Just like there are about a million ways to “do fondue”, there are a ton of ways to “do raclette” … Read More...
Today, January 6, 2021, has been a devastating, embarrassing, confusing day in our nation's history.
How do we wrap our heads around what happened today?
How do we explain to our children that our government building--the US Capitol--was broken into by fellow citizens?
How do we discuss the terrorism we experienced today?
How do we approach the fact that the law enforcement officers handled Black Lives Matter demonstrations much differently than they handled today's … Read More...

The Learning Match simply connects families with educators.
In this crazy, uncertain time we are all in, we all need help.
So many of my friends, neighbors, and family members are waving the white flag. They are maxed out trying to parent, work, and teach from home, and they're about to lose it.
The more people I talk to, the more I am asked:
Can I help their kids with schoolwork? Would I be able to "coach" the parents in how to teach from home?Do I know any good … Read More...

Now, more than ever, we need to re-think education.
These past few months have taught us so much. One thing we’ve realized is that we don’t have to keep doing the same things we’ve always done — the realities with which we’ve been presented are malleable. And if yesterday’s order of things can change so dramatically, then it’s well within our power as people and as a community to decide what tomorrow should look like.
In that spirit, Tomorrow, powered by Remake Learning, is a … Read More...

Summer looks different for everyone this year.
Pools are closed, vacations are cancelled, and camps are shut down.
However, just because this summer is a little (or a lot!) strange doesn’t mean that it can’t be a ton of fun. I’m thrilled to be partnering with the great folks of the Disney Book Group to share a bit about one of our favorite book series of all times by one of our favorite authors of all times: The Trials of Apollo … Read More...
