Default Re: What are some of your reasons to HS?

*No one loves or knows my child like me. He is a quirky, intriciate little boy and homeschool will allow us to help him reach his best potential. He is very sensitive and loves doing 'his own thing'.

*I taught lower elementary and LOVED it. I certainly don't think every parent needs that experience to homeschool, but I am very excited to use my education background and the mountains of materials in my attic with my own kids for a few years.

*Our public schools are not horrible, but not great. Someday we may be in a better district and be more open to public schools, but this one is not an option we're willing to even consider.

*Our church run K-12 school has a phenomenal reputation in the JR/SR high and they'll likely end up there. (DH is actually on the board.) However, an elementary school was recently merged and they have a lot of work to do to get it up to par. We're not willing to spend $7000+ for a medicore elementary education when we can comfortably provide a much better experience for our kids at a fraction of the cost.

*I was homeschooled a little bit and turned out ok.
