Kelly Korner blog ask about homeschooling. My first job was for Shea Schat the owner of Schat's Bakery in Bishop California, I was the nanny/homeschool teacher! I absolutely fell in love with homeschooling through this job. I could see the freedom, the kids had to be themselves, without the pressure from public school. Their imaginations were like nothing I have ever seen! When I became a mother at age 17 I knew that I would like to give it a go! However this did not happen until lil John and Sage were in 4th and 5th grade. During this time I had Sadie, and I was feeling so disconnected from my kids, I'd kiss them goodbye in morning then rush in evening with dinner, homework, bed! I was so exhausted with the new baby and missing my first two sooo much! I decided to pull them out of public school and home school! So happy I did, I felt a reconnection to them, and they both thrived academically! But after a years and a half they were missing their friends so much, and I was so busy with homeschool, new baby, writing a book, and did I mention I was a full time student as well???? So yes every second of my time was booked! Finally the kids were getting bored missing their friends, and I was looking for a break as well, so back to public school they went! I still struggle with my choice, but at the same time I'm so happy to see them doing their chores, getting ready, in the morning, and off to school! I see the benefits of both home school and public school.
