About Me

I'm a mom, a teacher, a student, a wife, and a scout leader. I am actually an education major currently working on my practicum in a 2nd grade classroom. I also home school my two children. I'm also a cub scout leader, a girl scout leader, and at church I'm the children's music leader. ;) I tend to stay a little busy. My state requires homeschoolers to keep a portfolio. I am going to use this blog as my portfolio.

What am I?

I need structure!!

Okay, I have discovered that I have to have structure. I know, most homeschoolers like to create their own curriculum and I can do that but it takes up to much time. I used to. Right now I am the Primary President (over 18 mo - 11 yo kids at church), stay-at-home mom of 2, full time college student, housekeeper, and I'm trying to homeschool. I just have no time to create my lessons so I have found a fabulous resource!!! It's a program called The Head of the Class. My kids love it and the best part -- it's completely free. The kids log on and it has all of their assignments for the day right there. They go to them and watch the video(s), play the games and print out the worksheets. So fabulous! I think we're going to do this until the fall when Collin will start K12 and I'll continue The Head of the Class with Ryanne. I signed Collin up for the preschool one and quickly realized that he's much farther ahead then that so I switched his to Kindergarten and signed Ryanne up for Pre-K. Much more suited for them that way. I love finding wonderful resources!! :)
