About Us


We exist to encourage and facilitate community and to equip educators in the Charlotte Mason method.  Just as Miss Mason's ideas of education were rooted and grew out of her faith in Christ, so we also share and encourage through an understanding of who Christ is.


Emily Pastor lives with her husband and three children in an Oregon ghost town in the Columbia River Gorge. She has shared her knowledge about the Charlotte Mason method through past workshops for CM West and facilitates a Charlotte Mason nature group and book club in Portland, OR. Emily is enrolled in an art program for classical realism and enjoys the constant overlap of art and nature in the CM method. Find out more about Emily and her love for art and nature on Instagram: @coopey_creek.


Bethany Lowndes thoroughly enjoys living in the rainy Pacific Northwest with her husband and four children. As a family, they love practicing the principles and methods of Charlotte Mason.  Their enthusiasm has helped them enlarge and strengthen a community of moms and dads who are eager to learn about and participate in book studies and activities. They spend time encouraging CM families through book studies, prayer, group events, and empathetic conversations. Check the events tab to connect with them.
