Last summer, the CiRCE Institute, a leading provider of inspiration, information, and insight to classical educators throughout North America, launched a new podcast called The Mason Jar. Homeschooling veteran, Cindy Rollins has interviewed a diverse group of Charlotte Mason educators for the series. Some episodes are driven by their listeners' questions. In her thirteenth interview, Cindy and Tammy Glaser talk about running a Charlotte Mason school, specifically our very own Harvest Community School. Grab a tall glass of iced tea and listen into their conversation.

"In this episode of The Mason Jar, Tammy Glaser joins Cindy Rollins to discuss her Charlotte Mason school in South Carolina (Harvest Community school), the ways a CM education has helped her autistic daughter, her advice for CM schools and teachers, and much more.
