Homeschooling my oldest son was a challenge, considering his medical condition and the multiple teaching responsibilities of my regular teaching job. However, it was ultimately rewarding seeing my son's positive progress in his academic studies. This momentum is continuing with my niece who is genuinely excited with the various integrated readings that are assigned to her. With this said, although I do believe in our public school system, there are possibilities for homeschooling to excel as well. It is not for everyone, but it does enable educators and parents alike to meet the unique needs of their children. God Bless you all for all that you do to make a difference.

Hafa Adai! Although my oldest son has completed his homeschool experience, I will continue to post educational ideas/news that other parents may find useful. After all, my oldest brother is also homeschooling his daughter, so you might say that homeschooling is ongoing in the family. :) I believe in the power of homeschooling with effective application of engaging strategies for each respective content area. I wish you all the best as you make a difference in the lives of your children, one day at a time. God Bless.
