Teaching. Is. Hard.

There. I said it.

It doesn’t matter who you are teaching, the end goal is still that someone is relying on you to lead, guide, and instruct them. And don’t even get me started on battling parents and politics.

This place is here for educators as a lifeline for resources to help boost classroom management techniques, help you to differentiate for the difficult learner, and to assist you to see inside the lives of a family battling behaviors.

We never thought we’d homeschool.

And then we had kids.

As a public school educator and product of public school, I have loved supporting our local educators. However, when it came to trying to get our son’s special needs met, it became clear that our schools were understaffed and overworked and unable to provide what he needed for an equitable opportunity for a quality education.

So, over the past 5 years, we have experienced preschool, day care, public school, school at church, private schools, and Roadschool (homeschool when you’re super cool). We’ve seen triumph and we’ve been asked to leave.

This is a space where we can talk out questions and consider options together.
