A Recipe for Success

Okay, so, I’ve homeschooled for more than two decades (and have more than a decade to go). Surely I’ve learned some secret for successful homeschooling! Is there a formula that any mom can apply, or a recipe that will guarantee a successful homeschooling experience? Susan shares 3 ingredients vital to any truly thriving homeschool. A fun and lighthearted, yet hard-hitting workshop that will strengthen your homeschooling foundations and insure a successful endeavor.

Preparing Your Outside-the-Box Kid for an Outside-the-Box Future

Doesn’t it seem that there’s only one legitimate path to success nowadays? Graduate high school, then go to college and graduate with a degree you’ll most likely never use, and accumulate a mountain of debt in the process. But, Moms, you homeschool because you think outside the box! There are SO MANY options available to you! You’re already providing a unique education for your uniquely-crafted child. Don’t stop now! Your child can be wildly successful with or without college. Susan, whose six sons all followed non-traditional career paths and are wildly successful, will offer help, brainstorm ideas, and show you that homeschooling outside the box toward the future is an exciting endeavor! Courage!

Confessions of a disorganized homeschool mom

I always thought I was an organized person – until I had 9 kids and homeschooled. Now I am faced with the humiliating truth. I am a messy! However, I have learned a number of tricks to make homeschool run more smoothly.  I’ll share with you my daily log ideas, my multilevel teaching ideas, and my daily “schedule.” I’ll also give you tips on what to do with all that homeschool clutter (books and projects) that accumulate. A fun workshop for the organizationally challenged.
