My name is Brandy and I am very happy to be a homeschooling mom to two boys ages 13 (T. going into 8th) and 10 (J. going into 5th). I have waited a long time to homeschool my children! I have been married to a wonderful man for almost 14 years, and we live in Florida. My husband is a fireman, so it’s nice to be able to work our schedule around his. My whole family loves the outdoors, we spend lots of time at the beach!� We have a wonderful church family that includes lots of other homeschoolers, which is a big plus.
Before homeschooling, I taught middle school for 11 years, in the areas of Language Arts/Reading and Social Studies. I love books!!! (really…we have sooooo many books, I’ve been collecting books to share with my kids since I was in elementary school 🙂 ) I also love history, as does my husband, which is probably why a lot of our homeschool is focused on history. As a language arts teacher, I’ve learned that you can really teach reading/writing/critical thinking etc. within the realm of that one subject.
I hope to be able to share my thoughts with other homeschoolers through this blog, as well as share info/resources I’ve found to be helpful, and I hope to get lots of feedback as well!
