Homeschool Mom, Homeschool Teacher
As a homeschool mom, I find that it is sometimes difficult to separate the mom from the teacher-so I don't. It is who I am.
Everywhere I look, I see learning potential...in places, in activities, in church, in my backyard. But the most significant place I see potential is when I look and really see my children, my friends, my family and those I meet and take the time to know.
Each of us, has something great to offer to this world.
Have you discovered what is your talent or gift or passion? Have you considered what is your contribution to this world?
As a homeschool mom one of your greatest gifts to this world is the education you are giving to your children. What you teach your children, beyond the subjects of school can influence the choices they make and the impact they have on this world.
We need leaders.
What do leaders do that are different? They know where they are going. They know their strengths and their weaknesses. They know how to communicate with everyone, not just their peers. They know how to ask questions, search for solutions and how to implement them.
We need problem solvers.
We need problem solvers not just those that can talk a good talk. What do problem solvers do that make them different? They don't give up in the face of adversity. They keep trying to change and improve their own opinions, thoughts and ideas on a variety of subjects. They love to learn and apply what they learn to do good. They are the action people who get things done -sometimes they fail but they just try again. Most importantly they learn from their mistakes and avoid making them again.
As homeschool moms, we want what is best for our children, we want to see them have a future that is bright and successful and we want to help them achieve their dreams and goals.
Let us teach our children to be leaders and let us teach them to be problem solvers.
Define what is important to you. Teach those things to your children.
Below, I will give you a little information about what is important to me, as a homeschool mom and just in general about who I am.
To Teach, To Learn, To Live, To Love
What is important to me?
This is what I am about.
Without my faith, I would be empty. It is what strengthens me, guides me, challenges me and preserves me. To me it is essential.
I have quite a large extended family and I love them all. I don’t get to see them as much as I would like to but we try to visit as much as possible.
I have a wonderful husband and three living children and two children in heaven. I have been blessed.
My faith and circumstances have led me into relationships that continue to this day despite time, distance and interruptions. I value my friends and I hope that they find in me a good and trusted friend.
Though I do not feel defined by my career, my actions of the past have brought me to this point in my life. I am thankful for the opportunities I have had throughout my life. I feel strongly about sharing and using my talents/gifts for the benefit of others.
