Getting Started

Greetings! I’m Jamie Gaddy, spokesperson for Homeschool.com and homeschool mom to six! Whether you are new to homeschooling or you are still considering the idea, we have a lot to talk about!

Getting Started Homeschooling Is Easier Now Than Ever Before!

Homeschooling is easier now than when I began teaching my children fifteen 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 a community for our kids. As homeschooling becomes an even more mainstream, affordable and accepted option, the home-learning landscape becomes an increasingly diverse and exciting option!

If you decide to embark on your own getting started 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 share my story online, where I aim to support dear friends just like you.

For inspiration, information and opportunities to connect with homeschoolers in your area, explore Homeschool.com’s links below. Don’t let the amount of information there overwhelm you. Relax. Pour a cup of tea and read slowly. A great place to start is with our two helpful homeschool quizzes. You can take the Learning Styles quiz and the Homeschool Methods quiz quickly and easily online!

I wish you and your children much joy and peace on whatever educational path you choose to travel. If, after exploring this site, you still have questions about getting started homeschooling, please feel free to contact me at [email protected]

With grace and joy,

Jamie
