Christopher Thorne


Former columnist for Practical Homeschooling Magazine.

Christopher Thorne worked for some time as an editor of Practical Homeschooling. Like so many of us at PHS, he had a science or engineering degree, however, and was eventually offered his dream job in scientific programming. While we're sad to see him go, we wish him success.
