  • My husband and I both are which is why we home school our kids. We believe and our motto is:

    "Learning is not confined to between the hours of 8am and 3pm; Monday - Friday. Learning happens anytime and anywhere. You have to be watchful for the opportunities all around you and Carpe' Diem!"

    We have school year round with frequent short breaks that gives us the same number of hours as PS kids, but is centered on OUR family. Home and family are the best classroom a child could ever have.
