    Default Hi from northern NY

    I homeschool our two children, DD 9 and DS 5. We live along the banks of the Hudson River and spend part of our time in the Adirondack Mountains as well.

    I was a public school art teacher before having children and now find myself loving to learn alongside the kids as we homeschool. I am also an artist and often joke that Iím an educator by day and artist by night!

    Iím so glad to find this site, forums and blogs, sometimes it isnít easy finding secular resources and ideas!
    Educator, Artist.
    Homeschooling DD, DS since 2015

    Welcome! As a former teacher myself (high school math and physics), I also agree homeschooling is very different from brick-and-mortar schooling. I loved being able to learn or see anew concepts and topics, especially history, through my kids' viewpoints.

    Homeschooled two kids for 11 years, now trying to pay it forward

    Daughter -- a University of Iowa graduate: BA in English with Creative Writing, BA in Journalism, and a minor in Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies

    Son -- a Purdue University graduate: BS in Computer Science, minor in math, geology, anthropology, and history
