Bios:
Rebecca Majoya received her bachelor’s degree in education and theater arts and went on to receive her master’s of education in curriculum design. For the past 28 years, she has been working as a homeschool consultant with families in Vermont. Rebecca has taught in public and private schools, grades K–12, and has created and taught classes in theater arts to homeschool kids, ages four to sixteen. She currently teaches at Community College of Vermont and works for Spectrum Youth & Family Services. She has over 25 years of social work experience, providing insight into what builds strong families and communities.

Sallyann Majoya’s love of language began at an early age when she concocted elaborate fairy tales for her family, as well as stories of animal and child adventures. This led to her first degree in English, her work as a copywriter, grant writer, and editor. She served as an arts manager in a higher education setting, allowing her to marry her passion for arts and education, as she introduced students in kindergarten through college to world music, dance, and the liberal arts. Sallyann is also a certified therapeutic harpist who has brought a compassionate presence to a variety of hospice and palliative care environments. She holds an additional degree in wellness & alternative medicine and seeks to combine the principles of holistic health in helping others find a deeper, integrated sense of wellness through words and music. Currently, she is working to attain her graduate degree in speech-language pathology.
