Choosing curriculum can be overwhelming to those who are just embarking on this journey. I want to encourage you to make learning fun and educational at the same time. I hope to help new homeschoolers who may not feel creative yet or those who have been doing it for a while and need a creativity boost. Much of what can be taught in the early years does not require a formal curriculum. Creative ideas will be shared; there will be suggestions on parenting books, read-aloud books, games, age-appropriate field trips and more.

Joann Nabb has been married for 40 years to Paul. They have 6 children who were homeschooled from birth through high school. They began their journey in 1985 and have enjoyed the trip. Back then, there were few resources and many critics. Joann learned creativity. From her experience as a private school teacher and years growing up in Holland and Switzerland, she pieced together her children’s education, making it hands-on and fun whenever possible. Taking advantage of the less stringent homeschooling schedule, they were able to take trips, a few even to Europe for several 3-6 month stays on a shoestring. Many of her French students have won national gold or silver medals for French. Currently, she has a son who is a marine JAG, a son who is a police detective, a daughter who is a teacher, a son who is a nurse, a daughter in exercise science and a son at NC State in industrial design.
