Just wanted to pop in and introduce myself!
I am a new homeschooler to my 7 yo daughter. †Prior to this she was in private school and I don't feel public school will be able to challenge her. †We are unable to continue to keep her in a private school due to financial reasons, as I'm about to go on a year's maternity leave (maybe permanent) as of Sept 24th. †Prior to being a SAHM, I have been a special education teacher for the past 10 years. †I am truly, truly burned out by the public school system (especially APS) and am looking forward to being at home with my girls.
I hope to be able to join the homeschool co-op at some point in the future. †With working part-time and being hugely pregnant, I don't think I can make the commitment quite yet! †
†I know my DD would be thrilled to be part of a group though!
Mom to Katie, age 7
