My 15-year-old son’s Beginning Engineering teacher was concerned when he addressed me today. “He was the speaker today for his group presentation for their CAD project, and he really had a hard time getting through it. His stuttering really tripped him up today. It’s not usually this bad. Of course, I know that you know he […]

Homeschooling isn’t the be-all, end-all of education. Shocking? I hope not. It is not healthy to bow down at the altar of homeschooling. When you do, eventually you will be in for a shock. I know- I’ve been there. I am a homeschool mom. I’ve taught my own kids for 18 years and if there’s […]
