The Sensible Homeschool Mission
This blog was created to provide real, practical, informed help to families like yours whether you’re considering home education or already deep in the trenches. Homeschooling is not for the faint of heart, but it is my prayer that the tips, resources and experiences shared here will push your homeschool closer towards its fullest potential.
When my family started homeschooling, the shared resources and encouragement from my local and online homeschool communities were nothing short of incredible. Years later, I’m in the thick of it and I’m 100% certain my homeschool wouldn’t be what it is today without the generosity and advice of the homeschoolers who paved the way for the rest of us.
This blog is an effort to pay it forward. The homeschool movement is growing but we’re still a small minority group – still very grassroots in a lot of ways. We need to stick together and help each other out! My hope is that the information here will provide real, doable solutions and encouragement to help your homeschool succeed.
I’m a Christian, engineer-turned-homeschooling-mom-of-three with a love of spreadsheets, overanalyzing and peanut butter chocolate ice cream (often all at the same time).
It seems like a lifetime ago that I got my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Architectural Engineering and worked in AE and architecture for over eleven years. When I had my first baby I left the workforce to stay home with him. Back then I never imagined we’d be homeschooling, but here we are and loving it (usually)!
Besides blogging here at the Sensible Homeschool, I’ve also written for publications like the Journal of Architectural Engineering and The Old Schoolhouse Magazine.
I hope the resources and ideas you find here are helpful to you wherever you are on your homeschooling journey!
