6 Step to Take Before Beginning the Homeschool process.
If you're reading this it's probably because you're considering homeschooling or maybe you've recently decided to Homeschool but you didn't grow up as a homeschooler and you haven't really been around a lot of homeschool families so you aren't sure what to do or where to start. but you know that the public school isn't cutting it and you need another option.
Great news! Homeschool is an Ah-Mazing option for so many families.
Want to hear more great news? There are MULTITUDE of resources out there for homeschooling families. LOTS of styles or variations of homeschooling methods. TONS of curriculum to choose from. And MORE opinions on it than you'll ever want to hear.
That IS great news BUT it's also overwhelming. I know. I've been there. I like to research, I'm not afraid to try new things and I enjoy being creative and out-of-the-box so I want to take all that awesome information I've gathered and help you navigate and transition from public school to the most amazing personalized Homeschool experience.
To begin with, it's important that YOU BELIEVE you CAN homeschool and succeed at it AND that your child(ren) believe that too. There's a couple steps you have to take to be able to do that.
First, understand that Homeschooling DOES NOT and SHOULD NOT be replicating or copying public school at home. There's a reason you pulled your child(ren) from "traditional" schooling. Something in the system was failing so why try to recreate that? It's a very difficult concept for a lot of people to comprehend. Or, for those who believe this already, the struggle to actually DO something DIFFERENT is real!

BONUS: Does Community Matter?
I'm a Gypsy soul, with an Entrepreneurial spirit and compassionate heart. I believe passionate people inspire people and that we all should be chasing our passions in life. I help others do that through helping others figure out how to LIVE life, LOVE more and LEARN as they GO explore.
Having taught ASL and Entrepreneurship both in the classroom and online to high school students for the past 12 years, I have a heart of teenagers and helping them succeed.
I also love encouraging closet gypsy souls who are afraid to just chase their dreams and be true to the real person they are who's been locked away inside because of fear.
I can't help but help!
