The following is a post by contributor Angie Kauffman of Real Life at Home.
We never set out to be homeschoolers. I had never even heard of homeschooling until I was in college. I was working on my first degree in education, and when I heard about it, I thought it sounded ridiculous. How did people think they could teach their children at home when I was spending years in college to become a credentialed teacher?
Life is often funny like that, isn’t it? I can still picture sitting in a class thinking how insane that was.
Little did I know that my views would soften once I started having children. Eventually, they would soften so much that I would not only stop thinking that homeschooling was insane, but I would think it sounded like a pretty good idea for my family.
