  • Do you have to have a teaching degree to homeschool your kids where you are? I've never heard of that. I have tons of friends who homeschool but none of them have degrees in education. Unless you eventually plan to teach in the schools, I wouldn't think it would be a smart use for your money.

  • college is very fun, it will get you out of the house, everyone is nice to pregnant people.

  • If you're planning to finish in 9 months, you must be pretty close to finishing your degree right now anyway, right? Why not finish if you're this close, I guess!

  • You do not need a teaching degree to be a successful homeschooler. However, a good grasp of spelling and grammar are basic necessities.

    Perhaps a better option would be to find a great school system that will prepare your child for college. If you are in Chicago, I will be happy to help you navigate the system. If not, you can start here:

  • It takes a lot longer than 9 months to get a degree in elementary education in my area.
