My name is Lisa and I homeschool my creative and fun-loving daughter Mara. I balance homeschooling along with my part-time career as a HR Consultant and faculty member at a university in the Greater Toronto Area.
As a family, we are very passionate about living life to its fullest. In 2014, we moved to three acres in the country to be surrounded by nature and to give us lots of space for outdoor activities. This included putting up a basketball net, which is our family’s favourite sport! When our daughter would have been entering grade 3, our family decided to try homeschooling and we’ve never looked back.
My name is Mara and my favourite activities are basketball, playing piano and singing. My favourite subjects are Music, Science and Culture. We live in the country and I love nature! I went to school from JK to grade 2. For grade 3, we started homeschooling. My favourite parts of homeschooling are that I spend more time with my family, I wake up whenever I want, I help choose the subjects I work on each day and we go on lots of field trips.
Our intent is to educate our family, friends and the community about homeschooling and its benefits. We’ll share our adventures in homeschooling and helpful homeschool resources. We’ll also discuss important news in the homeschooling community. We’ll show that with proper planning and resources, everyone can homeschool!
If you need help setting up your homeschool or deciding if homeschooling is right for your family, contact us. Our goal is to assist homeschool families that need support. We also want to help families that are considering homeschooling to take the leap!
