The beginning of the school year is quickly approaching, but this year, the global pandemic we are facing is raising concerns about how to approach education. Many parents are finding themselves in a really tough spot, trying to decide whether they send their kids back to school, or if they make the switch to homeschooling.
Raise your hand if that’s you — you’re thinking about trying to plan your year, creating routines… but your head is spinning!
To Homeschool, Or Not To Homeschool…
Maybe you’re trying to find a program with a pre-designed curriculum to help save time… but you’re still overwhelmed at all the program choices out there.
Perhaps you’re a parent who had no intention of homeschooling whatsoever, but life has thrown you a complete curve ball… and you find yourself doing it anyway.
It could be that you’re more of a free spirit who doesn’t want to be bound by the rigid schedule of most homeschool programs, and you’d rather do your own thing. (Did you know that’s really a thing?) But where do you start?
Or maybe, you would really love to homeschool, but even just the thought of it scares the crap out of you. “I have a hard enough time trying to get my child to listen to me on a good day. How on earth will I get them to listen to me if I homeschool?!“
Hiiii. I’m an elementary school teacher turned homeschooling mama. Let me help 👋🏻
How I Can Help You
I’m an elementary teacher turned Stay-at-Home mama, raising my two beautiful babies. My oldest daughter, Suzie, is almost 4 and will be starting Pre-K here at home in the next couple weeks. My youngest, Potter, is an adventurous almost 2 year old who is too young for school, but not afraid to get FULLY involved in everything we do (and climb up on/destroy all the things if he doesn’t have full eyes on him). I’ll be sharing my experiences as I teach BOTH of them in a traditional and non-traditional setting.
I completed my Bachelor of General Studies in Education Degree in 2012, focusing on a Double Minor in Curriculum & Instruction and Early Learning. Since then, I have been a BC Certified Elementary School Teacher and I have taught in many K-7 classrooms throughout my career. I can’t wait to show you the ropes!
