Parent’s first name(s):
Are you currently homeschooling one or more of your children?:
Intro & Educational Style:
We are in our second year of homeschooling or 11 year old. We have lived in many countries and after our second year in France our very happy child started hating school. I couldn't accept that my child was going to spend a year with a teacher I had witnessed screaming and being abusive to students. So after giving her a choice of staying in the same school, changing schools or being homeschooled, she decided on homeschooling. Since I'm an internationally accredited Montessori teacher up to the age of 12 it was easy for me to offer this to our child. We have all the AMI materials and mostly use this for teaching however we supplement with traditional French workbooks and have decided to also enroll in a French correspondence course.
Who are you looking to network with, what activities do you do, etc.:
Yes, it could be great fun to have some education get together and I'm always excited to share my knowledge with others.
Any tips for other home educators?:
Be creative, have fun, try to be very organized with your teaching so your child knows what to expect. Oh, make sure your homeschooled child is around other children as much as possible.
