First Steps in Homeschooling

Week 4 - Beyond the 3Rs 

Join us as we discuss starting to homeschool.  This week we will being with a round robin of our panelists about curricula beyond math and English. Bring your questions (all questions are fair game!) and share your progress as you consider and potentially make the transition to homeschooling. We will meet for these informal discussions once a week for six weeks.

The following experienced homeschoolers will be on hand to answer questions and provide support.  

Sarah Alexander - Sarah specifically planned to never homeschool, having been homeschooled herself. Seeing how fulfilling it has been for her children, however, and how much easier it is than she had envisioned, she is happy that they ended up on this path. Sarah is a director for the LOGYC homeschool coop.
Becca Berbaum  - Becca has navigated part-time homeschooling in cooperation with public schools for 8 years. She is a former public school special education teacher and has four gifted children. She has a passion for supporting student-directed problem-based learning in the community.
Heather DeGeorge - Heather is a second career high school teacher that went rogue to homeschool her won children - who have never attended a school full-time (but have partially enrolled for specific classes) in two different states. 
Amy Weaver - Amy never thought about homeschooling until faced with a four year old that read above the third grade level. She follows her child on most decisions and re-evaluates the balance of external instruction versus home every year.
