After nine years of homeschooling, Katie realized that homeschooling is not just something they do. It is what drives the culture of their home. Their homeschool is so much more than the work done around the table. Every aspect of their day from make believe to caring for their animals, from driving activity to activity to listening to Adventures in Odyssey, provides opportunity to dive deeper into learning. The beauty of homeschooling is the atmosphere we as parents are able to foster. What does it look like to stretch our children beyond the curriculum to discover a love of learning?

Katie Dugdale is a child of God, wife to Brian and mom to Elijah, Abigail, Selah and Tybi. She has a degree in early childhood education from Presbyterian College in Clinton, SC. She taught preschool for years before getting married and starting a family. Once her first child was born, the adventure really began. Long story short, she moved often. Each baby was born in a different state. She has homeschooled for nine years. Her philosophy of education has evolved greatly over the years and can currently be described as eclectic or delight directed. She has been on the board of the Henderson County Homeschool Association for four years. She is the author and developer of several teacher helps and no prep printables sold via Teachers Pay Teachers. In her spare time (ha-ha), she runs a business selling custom t-shirts, decals and planner stickers. She also volunteers with her church youth group.
