“I didn’t know you homeschooled!” As a working mother, who also homeschools, I hear this comment quite frequently, followed by “How do you do that?” This workshop shares tips and strategies for families who are interested in a nontraditional path to homeschooling where both parents are working. We will discuss how to create a flexible schedule where you can participate in co-ops and learning communities, collaborate with other families and integrate career and household responsibilities. Thinking out of the box is encouraged!
