Teaching My Own

Education is not the filling of a pail,
but the lighting of a fire.
William Butler Yeats


The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge.
Proverbs 1:7a


I love that we have the freedom in this country to choose what form of education we want our children to receive.   It’s such a blessing to know that, as parents, we have a variety of options to choose from: public, private, alternative, or home-based education.  When my husband and I were trying to decide which option would be best for our family, we discussed the pros and cons of each possibility.  After much thoughtful consideration, we decided we wanted to educate our children at home.  We made this decision while I was pregnant with our first child. Fastforward eight years and we are now a homeschooling family with three precious children, ages 8, 6, and 3, two boys and girl.  We are currently using the Classical Method of Education  as outlined by Susan Wise Bauer and Jessie Wise in their book The Well-Trained Mind.  Below you'll find a list of the resources/books/ curriculum that we using for each subject, as well as posts we've written related to each subject.   Also look on the sidebar below the section titled "Homeschooling Resources" for a few of my favorite sites.  This page is "under construction". :o) Please check back often for updates and changes!

Do you homeschool? Plan to homeschool in the future? Curious about homeschooling? Think homeschooling is a bad idea?  Have questions about homeschooling with toddlers?  Don't know what curriculum or method will work best for your children?  Need to vent your frustration or fear about homeschooling with someone? Please, send me an email.  I'd love to  help in any way that I can.  I'm no expert (far from it), but I've learned a thing or two the last few years.  If you have a question or concern that I cannot help you with myself,  I'll do my best to direct you to someone who can.  Don't hesitate to contact me.
