About Me

TeacherStaceyBAB at Leaning Tower of Pisa

It all started when…

my husband asked “What if we moved to Italy?”. Then I said yes. Then we moved to Italy 85 days later.

My name is Stacey and I am an expat mom. My family and I moved to Italy in August 2018 to begin our two year family sabbatical. Three months later I followed the advice of a fellow teacher and applied for VIPKID. I now work from home 3 days a week between homeschooling our son, visiting my husband’s native country and enjoying life along the Adriatic Sea.

In the past I have been a middle school English teacher, reading teacher, library assistant, doula, and childbirth educator. I love animals, long walks, crafting and reading.

My love of books and sharing them with friends eventually lead to my becoming an organizer for Usborne Books at Home.

I use Usborne books in my online classroom, for our son’s homeschool curriculum and in small English learning groups I host in our home.

If you are interested in teaching, reading, or some combination of both, I would love to help you build a classroom that fits you and your family.
