My Philosophy of Home Education
The most important educator is a parent educator!
As an educator with over 18 years of experience, I believe in the head, heart, hands model for transformative learning. transformative education must be intellectually engaging, spiritually cultivating (foster care), and communally connected.
Education should be transformative to the degree that it shapes the hearts and minds of the next generation--our children. We ought not to focus on socializing our young to maintain the status quo. Instead, as parent educators, we must socialize our children to have a positive self-concept and understanding of the importance of realizing their purpose. That is, creating, building, and doing good as productive members of the society to which they belong.
Homeschooling is difficult when parents do not have the tools and framework for facilitating learning in their homes. On the other hand, homeschooling is made simple when parents are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and understanding necessary to create an optimal learning experience that is engaging, fun, and developmentally appropriate for their children.
