Hey there! I’m Leah.

I’m a homeschooling mother of 2, natural learning advocate, Master teacher, speaker, author, and the founder of Your Natural Learner.

My greatest joy comes from parents and teachers seeing their children have that AHA! moment when something they’re excited about finally connects!

A bit more about me:

  • I have over 15 years of experience educating and working with children of all ages, from infancy to college years.
  • I have two Masters of Education degrees as a Reading Specialist, K-12 certification, and Curriculum and Instruction Design.
  • I’ve been running my own natural education business for 5 years, and have worked with hundreds of families and educators around the world to totally transform the way they look at the learning process and the way they teach their children.
  • I don’t just talk the talk, I walk the walk – through a lifetime of experience traveling, learning, and experimenting with my own family, to make sure I’m sharing only the best and the brightest with you!

And when I’m not designing my next online course, leading a workshop with teachers, or writing content for my followers, you can find me enjoying the gorgeous Pacific Northwest outdoors with my husband Brian and our two boys Charlie and Desmond, snuggling up with one of our pups, or planning the next big family vacation!

Professional Bio:

Leah McDermott, M.Ed. is a homeschooling mama of 2, and a former Master Educator who spent her early career working in inner city public schools, where she realized how little interaction students had with nature and quality literature on a daily basis. It has since become her mission to help parents and teachers around the world bring more natural elements to their children’s everyday learning experiences.  

She does this mainly through her nature-inspired curriculum, A Child’s World, her one-of-a-kind parent training course Grow Your Natural Learner, and through multiple professional development training programs for educators and parents.  

Leah has over 15 years of experience educating and working with children of all ages, from infancy to college years. She has two Masters of Education degrees as a Reading Specialist, K-12 certification, and Curriculum and Instruction Design. She has been featured on The Huffington Post and has been speaking and offering virtual and live workshops for teachers and parents around the world for the past four years.
