    Default Hi, from Central IL

    I have been reading on here for quite awhile. I guess I don't know if I belong on here. I don't actually home school, my kids go to daycare and preschool and I work full time as a Head Start Teacher. I do teach my children at home after work, on weekends and as much as I can over our summers off. I also use the Timberdoodle curriculum (only secular items though).

    I would love, love to stay home next year with my children next year when my oldest is supposed to start Kindergarten, so that I can actually home school.

    Welcome! Homeschooling is a state of mind, I think.

    Welcome! I'm the admin here at SHS and my approach has always been to open our forum to not only those actively homeschooling but those considering it as well. Homeschool parents are researchers by nature, it seems, so you might just fit in perfectly with the homeschooling lifestyle!! We're finished with our journey (homeschooled from kindy through high school) now, and all I can tell you is that I wouldn't trade the experience for the world. It was an opportunity to not only facilitate their education, but learn new stuff right alongside my kiddos. If you take that approach - - seeing homeschooling as a chance to learn cool things together - - your enthusiasm will be infectious and you'll instill a lifelong love of learning in your children. What's better than that?! SO glad to have you here at SHS!

    Thank you for welcoming me. I do feel like I home school, and probably still will even if they are in public school.
