For a lot of parents, the problem is they feel they lack the foundational homeschooling basics.
Maybe you’ve made the decision to homeschool but are scared to actually take those next steps.
Maybe you’ve read all the free downloads and resources you can find on homeschooling but feel overwhelmed with all the different options and choices you need to make.
Maybe you’re nervous about trying to balance more than one child at different grade levels.
Maybe you’ve started homeschooling and feel like you’re becoming the awful Mrs. Thorne from the 3rd grade (and you hated her).
Or maybe you’re really enjoying the beginning stages of homeschooling your child but wish you had someone to bounce ideas off of.
Any of these sound familiar?
Whether you’re slowly moving into your homeschooling journey or have already jumped in head first…
Homeschooling is like riding a bike...
As a career-long educator across grade levels, a preschool owner, and a transition-to-homeschooling coach, I’ve seen first hand how homeschooling can create overwhelm and extra stress in a home - even for parents who know it’s right for their child.
I’ve seen parents make the decision that homeschooling is best for their child and their family, but because they don’t know where to start, they end up delaying the change, and their child spends more time in the traditional classroom than their parents had hoped.
For the parents who are scared to start homeschooling and don’t feel confident or smart enough to be their child’s teacher, I often ask them this question:
Do you remember what it was like to ride a bicycle as a kid?
Well, I sure do!
I was around 4 years old and finally felt comfortable enough to let my dad take the training wheels off my bike. My parents took me to the big open parking lot of Cashell Elementary School to give it a go!
I got on my bike and remember feeling the energy and excitement running through me. Here we go! I was flying down the middle of the parking lot, free like a bird! I was doing it!!
And then I crashed. Hard.
I was crying. I had cut my leg and blood was everywhere. I was devastated that I had fallen down and afraid to ride anymore. My mom and dad helped me up, cleaned my leg, and made me get back on that bike to try again.
What I learned that day, and what you may have learned while riding a bike too, is that it’s okay to start something without being an expert. It’s enough to believe in yourself and to go for it! It’s even okay to fall down. When you fall, the key is to get back up, give it another shot, and use the support around you to accomplish what you want.
The same can be said for your homeschooling journey.
You'll go farther together.
I truly believe that you can start homeschooling your kids on your own. There are a ton of free resources that you can use to help you get started and with your own experience in school, you absolutely have the ability to be a good homeschool parent.
If you know that feeling ready and able to homeschool your child is important to you, then getting support while you go through the process will create that confidence you are looking for.
Once you have strong homeschool foundations in place,
you will …
Understand how your child learns and how you can tailor your curriculum to their specific learning needs
Be able to confidently design a curriculum that is going to align with your family’s values and provide your child with the education they need
Create lesson plans that are easy to execute because you’ve intentionally leveraged the resources you have available
Determine how your child is understanding and progressing through the learning opportunities you’ve built to continuously improve your focus (and theirs too!)

Will you be covering ‘unschooling’ in the content?
No, this will not be covered. I believe in using what you know to get started. For some of you, that means you may begin by replicating the idea of school in your home. You’ll grow as you go and that increased confidence will enable you to tweak, pivot and make changes to find the best learning environment for you and your child when you’re ready. We’ll take one step at a time.

I understand that homeschooling is a big decision for parents to make.

I will respond to all emails and texts within 24 business hours.
Without a Foundation, There Can’t Be Structure
If you’ve read this far, then you’re serious about homeschooling your child as soon as possible.
You can continue to use all the free resources out there and search through Facebook groups only to come up with information that isn’t useful, doesn’t relate to your situation, and is maybe just wrong.
Or, you can work side by-side with me to build your homeschooling foundations so you feel confident guiding your child through their education.
Imagine for a moment it's
one year from today.
Your child is still in traditional schooling. You have tried to start homeschooling but you feel confused, stressed, and overwhelmed with everything that goes into the process.
Remember, without a foundation, you can’t build a structure that's going to last on top of it.
Now picture this...
You’ve just finished up your first full year of homeschooling! You are confident in your curriculum you are teaching, the lesson plans you have created, and love watching your child participate in sports and arts around the community!
All of this can happen if you decide to build a strong foundation and get the support you deserve to have on your homeschooling journey!
Remember that the $297 Launch Price is only available until September 30th before the price goes up!
