Homeschooling is rewarding

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.
