Homeschooling Affirmation

So, today, we got an e-mail from the woman who was supposed to be Crumpet's teacher at the charter school. (Crumpet will attend 2-4 classes a month at the school, and then be taught at home the rest of the time.) She has decided that she will no longer be teaching at the school. And here is her reason:
She has been working at the school for seven years, watching others homeschool their children while hers attended public school. She has seen how well all of these homeschooled kids do, and how happy they are, and she wants that for her own children. So she will now be homeschooling her own children. I don't think you can get a better recommendation for what we are doing!


  1. Great choice on her half! Kinda stinks he will need a new teacher though. Great pic btw =)

  2. Cool story. Thanks for sharing. Been a difficult couple of weeks transitioning back into school here. Been VERY tempted "again" to just go ahead and enroll them in school. When it really comes down to it though, I can't. So here we go, pressing on for another year.

  3. I find it sad when (good) teachers quit to stay at home and teach their own children. Can't blame them though seeing how little respect they get including from many people in homeschooling community.
