Welcome to a plan for home education that works for everyone in the family - including you.
You're determined to homeschool your children but figuring out what to do, how to do it, how to meet everyone's needs, do the housework, get the laundry done and cook dinner is overwhelming! And if you're working, well - it seems impossible to juggle it all.
The bottom line is: Yes, you can homeschool and it will likely be the best decision you've ever made for your children. You just need to learn a few strategies.
Whether you are homeschooling for a short time (hello, Covid) or for the long haul, I'd be honored to walk with you as you Design your Homeschool Life.
Hi, my name is Jill
I'm a mother of 5, and a homeschool veteran of 17 years. I love to encourage moms. So I bring my toolkit of hard won lessons to all I do. Here are a few of those experiences:
CA Credentialed Teacher and Tutor
Home Stylist/ Paint Color Strategist
Homeschool Speaker and Consultant
Mostly, I just know what it's like to be a mom, to homeschool, to parent, manage a home, work and well, do all the things - like you.
There are 5 Crucial Steps to a designing a successful homeschool
You are the most important element, yep - YOU. You set the tone from the moment you wake up in the morning to the last tuck in and kiss on the forehead. That's the good news because it means that YOU can create whatever you want. In the Design your Homeschool Life Monthly Membership we work through these 5 steps over time and revisit them again and again as you grow in your homeschool journey. Read on, sweet mama, and you'll see what I mean...
You are the Visionary
If you know WHAT you believe about children and education, that conviction will carry you through the tough days.
In Step 1 you'll gain clarity on your preferred educational approach through guided research and journaling.
You are the Leader
Your personal growth is so important because YOU are the most influential curriculum in your homeschool. Your children are learning how to live life from your example.
In Step 2, you'll get insight into how personality types, love languages, and learning styles dictate how you approach each child so you can create a schedule that works for everyone.
You are the Homemaker
A calm, orderly home sets the stage for learning and living. You create the routines and rhythms that sustain everyone and your children can learn to participate in the work of making a home.
In Step 3, you'll learn how to assign chores, get the laundry done, and plan meals in a simple way so you can enjoy learning with your children.
You are the Teacher
Understanding your children's learning styles and personalities and what you believe about education will guide you as you choose the curriculum and activities that fill your days.
In Step 4, you'll take all you've learned and make wise decisions about which curriculum to use and which enrichment activities to add so you can feel confident about your school.
You Create the Atmosphere
Rooms should support the activities you value most for your family. You can create spaces that reflect your style and personality with simple home styling on any budget.
In Step 5, you'll look at each room in your home with fresh eyes and a plan to make it function in support of your homeschooling efforts and dreams for your family life.
What people are saying about Jill's homeschool programs...
"You have done such an excellent job of synthesizing ideas, approaches, resources, etc. that it is all 'coming together for me' in a remarkable way. You have helped me create an overall vision for my homeschool: one that will inspire me as I go, and will help me select what is important and what to let go of. There is so much information out there it is overwhelming. You have culled snd synthesized the very best. Thank you."
"Jill addresses it all for homeschool moms! This course looks at homemaking & the atmosphere of your home, easy ways to incorporate fine arts, nature & more, and looking at the ways each of your family members were created. So much helpful content to help build relationships with your children! Jill is so sweet and I'm so glad I went through this course!"
