A Conversation with Jean Hall
by Nancy Graham
Jean is a former newspaper reporter and literary magazine editor who homeschooled three children from birth—now they’re grown up, but Jean still has a house full of animals. We chatted via Zoom (which is like Skype), and I got to hear her dog, Dobby (who had a lot to say), and meet her lovely yellow cat, Fireball (the name Snowball had already been taken by her white cat).
After talking to Jean, I was convinced that no one should walk into a timed-essay test without the benefit of her experience. When the SAT and ACT tests changed, Jean redesigned the class to reflect those changes.
