Hi! I’m Jessica welcome to the Home-school section of my blog. I want to share with you our new journey into homeschooling.
Our schooling background
First I want to share a little bit about our situation. My daughter has shown tremendous abilities and has a relatively different thinking pattern. Her public school journey has been nothing but problems, one thing after another. She behaves very well, that’s not the issue. But instead she grasps things differently and to be honest a teacher doesn’t have time to assist each student on an individual level. Let’s just simply put it as she’s lacking by a lot.
My daughter just isn’t doing what they want and how they want it. She loves learning and she asks me all the time to do things with her. She’s such a smart girl and I’m not sure if she’s just afraid, distracted, unfocused or what but I just don’t see why she’s having so many issues. She can do everything just fine here at home.
I want her to keep this excitement for learning and I fear if we continue down a public school path that will soon disappear. We also have another big factor in our life at the moment as we move and transition into a new area.
I’ve had some deep conversations and have decided to team up with a very good friend and fellow blogger, Tiffany from The Quirky Mom Next Door to help combat some of these issues.
She has guided me in so many ways and we have some similar views on a variety of topics including our thoughts of our school system. We think our school systems are almost “Ant Like”. Let’s say it’s almost like if you can not learn a certain way you are no good to the system. You have to do everything the same exact way as everyone else. This takes away from being an individual completely and we want our kids to excel.
Introduction to Tiffany
Tiffany is a blogger at The Quirky Mom Next Door, and a work-at-home mother of five children ranging in age from 3 to 11. Currently, her children attend public school but she’s had her fair share of less than ideal experiences thus far. Tiffany laments about not homeschooling her children but her and her husband have been actively trying to change their public school district for the better. She’ll be sharing her experiences, goals, and activities with us throughout the series.
The idea is for us moms to help our children excel and share our schooling experiences. We want to talk about the issues and find solutions so each child gets the education they deserve.
