Bio for media: 
Patricia Zaballos is a writer and reformed educator in Oakland, California. Forever obsessed with how people learn, her essays on the subject have appeared in Salon, Literary Mama, Life Learning Magazine, Mothering Magazine, and home/school/life magazine, where she wrote a column for several years. A former third-grade teacher, she went on to homeschool with her three now-grown children for twenty years, the experience making her a fierce advocate for learner-guided education. Her in-progress, hybrid essay collection explores how she learned to trust her gut as a mother and learned to trust her kids with freedom in their learning and their lives during the same years that, in the larger culture, parents and youth were losing those freedoms.
