“Without education we are in horrible and deadly danger of taking educated people seriously.” G.K. Chesterton
2020 has been a year of unprecedented challenges for parents whose children have always gone to school. Suddenly, we were all in charge, all day long, sometimes with little direction from the school system. If you have found this page, you may now be considering home schooling this fall. But you have learned that it is not without challenges to be home with children and in charge of their education.
I am a “retired” homeschool teacher who successfully taught through high school. Both my children ended up at high level schools with scholarships, have completed graduate degrees (Master of Music Arts & PhD in Chemistry), and are now working, raising, and educating their own children.
After the children graduated, I volunteered for Athanatos Christian Ministries where I created and taught classes in Christian Apologetics and Philosophy for Athanatos Academy. I served as the judge for the Athanatos Christian Novel Contest for five years, coaching semi-finalists to improve their work for final submissions.
I have also taught online and in person reading, writing, and critical thinking classes for other home educated children. But mostly, I have coached homeschool moms, helping them wade through choices, plan goals, and work through the inevitable obstacles that arise. Everyone needs reinforcements when it comes to educating children and with the public schools so uncertain at the moment, maybe you do too. No buzz-words, just common-sense advice on the best materials and approach for your children’s needs.
