1. Lee Giles – Homeschooling can be Easy-Peasy!
“I would love to homeschool, but it probably costs a fortune!” Do you find yourself saying this? Believe it or not, homeschooling can actually be done for FREE. Yes, you read that right—for free.
Meet Lee Giles, creator of Easy Peasy All-in-One Homeschool. Lee came to develop Easy Peasy out of necessity. As a mom of six and missionary family, money wasn’t always at her disposal. In this podcast, Lee describes living in ghettos in three different countries. She recalls times when she did purchase homeschooling curriculum items and would find herself disappointed and thinking, “I could’ve made this myself.” And make it she did! Lee houses all of her free homeschooling curriculum on her site and has enough lessons available for 180 days for every grade level from Kindergarten to 12th grade. That’s right—free homeschooling curriculum for your entire journey! But is it really possible for homeschooling to be that easy and still be legit? Lee answers this question and more in an interview with Rebecca Kochenderfer, CEO and co-founder of Homeschool.com.
