The very lovely and sweet Elizabeth Riley interviewed me about homeschool for her blog. I was honored to be featured with so many other great women that she has interviewed about homeschooling. You can read the other interviews by clicking here. I thought I would share a portion of our interview and then you can click over to her blog to read the rest. Thanks for reading!
What are your long-term education goals for your family? My long-term educational goals for my family are that everyone knows how to learn, that they love to learn, and that they continue to learn for the rest of their lives. I think that if you know how to learn and you love to learn there isn’t anything in the world, especially now with technology the way it is, that you can’t teach yourself. So many people have self-defeating ideas that learning can only take place in a classroom and that learning isn’t necessary after you graduate from school. But, to me learning is fun, it’s exciting, it helps me become better, it helps me grow and do new things. It helps me fulfill my dreams. Learning has meaning and purpose, and it benefits you and all those around you.
What do you love most about homeschooling? I love that I get to spend time with my children. I love that I get to help them discover the joy of learning. I also get to watch their passions and dreams materialize, and I get to help them work toward those dreams. I also love that I get to learn right along with my children.
