About Celeste

Celeste Cruz lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and their nine children, all age 12 and under. Once upon a time she was training to be an English professor; now she can usually be found with a baby strapped to her back and toddlers underfoot as she learns alongside her six school-aged kids. When she has her hands free, she enjoys running, reading, and nature journaling.

In addition to serving her local community of Charlotte Mason educators, her joy is supporting homeschool mothers across a variety of platforms: she writes for Common Place Quarterly, chats weekly at CM Coast to Coast, curates content @charlottemasonirl and @keepingcompanycm, organizes retreats for Charlotte Mason West, and shares the joys of a Catholic Charlotte Mason home education at
