Homeschooling mom, officially homeschooling for 3 years.
I prefer activities that reinforce the idea that science, math, history, and language arts are not mutually exclusive propositions. In the real world, several different disciplines can be at play at all times. Education should reflect that.
Yet to be added
3 years of college as a Business Administration major. Not yet completed - YET!
I have two children: a 13 year old girl and a 5 year old boy. Both excel in academics and were not challenged in their public schooling situation. This is why we homeschool. Personally, I have been married for 20 years and live in California. When I worked outside the home, my occupation was in healthcare administration.
