I lead from the middle. I gather everyone around me and say, “Come on, let’s get this done.” Homeschool moms need mercy, help, and hope when they feel stuck or discouraged. I believe, with help, anyone can homeschool and thrive. Take a look at my topics, and if you’re interested in booking me for an event click here.

She discusses subjects to teach, incorporating multiple subjects together, and how to help your kids manage their schedules.
Seasons of life require different life skills. When schooling your child at home, you decide the who, what, where and when of their social life. In homeschooling, you’re able to utilize the opportunity for real-life examples. In public school children become peer dependent and mostly socialize with others their own age. Kids that are homeschooled enjoy people of all ages and have more time to spend on their personal interest. In this class Jennifer compares public school socialization with homeschool socialization. She will also explain co-ops, hybrid schools, al a carte classes and cyber school.
Teach your kids executive function, socialization, and use a variety of learning styles while utilizing Unit Studies, Projects, and Field Trips. Jennifer will give several examples that her adult children still remember as being the best of school times. Don’t miss out because you think you’re not creative, there are lots of ways to go about this!
