Virtual Homeschool Co-op {2016-2017} Introduction


Hey there friends,

I’m Shelly and this response post is my part of the Virtual Homeschool Coop Channel Collaboration. You can find out more at The goal of the Virtual Homeschool Coop is to build the homeschool community of knowledge with collaborations to give voice to all experiences in homeschooling.

How long have you been homeschooling?

This is our first year homeschooling and I can honestly say it is a challenge but it is a very rewarding experience.

Who are you homeschooling?

I am homeschooling my children. My oldest son is five years old {Kindergartener} and my youngest son is three years old {starting basic Preschool activities}.

What is your mission statement?

We don’t have a mission statement per say, but our goals with homeschooling is to have raise life long learners, that love to learn, and I just want to be able to enjoy as much time with my children as I can. Its our jobs as parents to train up our children in the way they should go and there is little time to train them if there not physically in your presence i.e. in public school.

What is your homeschool approach?

Our homeschool approach is kind of eclectic style of textbook, hands on, and Charlotte Mason learning.

Where are you?

We are in Pennsylvania.

How has social media {Blogs and YouTube} helped you homeschool?

Blogs and YouTube has helped me homeschool by opening my eyes to the different styles of homeschooling, homeschooling schedules, and homeschool curriculum and reviews.

What are you excited to get out of the VHC?

I’m excited to be apart of a homeschool community and to make new friends. I don’t personally know to many homeschool families, so its exciting to know that there are others out there that feel the same way I do about homeschooling.
