Greetings! I'm Rebecca Kochenderfer, mother
of three, CEO of homeschool.com, and author of the books
Homeschooling and Loving It,
Joyful Homeschooling and
The Joy Journal. Whether
you are new to homechooling or you are still considering the idea, we have a
lot to talk about!
Homeschooling is easier now than when I began teaching my children twenty
years ago. Thanks to the internet, students can connect with peers and
educators from around the world. Online resources, many of which are free,
enable students to delve deep into any subject they desire. Homeschooling
co-ops and alternative learning centers are providing community for our
kids. As homeschooling becomes a more mainstream, affordable and accepted
option, the home-learning landscape is an increasingly diverse and exciting
If you decide to embark on your own homeschooling adventure, you'll have
your share of beautiful days bursting with spontaneous craft projects,
hands-on science experiments, field trips and family read-alongs. But I'll
be honest with you; there will be hard days too. As a homeschooling mom, I
didn't always feel confident that we were doing things "correctly." I often
yearned for a road map—a guide to reassure me when things got tough. This
longing inspired me to launch homeschool.com where I aim to support folks
just like you.

information there overwhelm you. Relax. Pour a cup of tea and read slowly.
