My name is Christal. I started homeschooling my 6th grade daughter in September 2018. Since 3rd grade, my daughter had issues in school. She daydreams often, had too many kids in class, the WHOLE class fell behind and she even dealt with bullying. Often times, I would say, "I can definitely do better than this". Combining my many years of tutoring and teaching, I felt confident homeschool was right for my family.
Although there are multiple ways to homeschool, we can all find some common ground to support one another. This group will start with introductory meetings. The events/activities will include, but are not limited to group academic and arts classes, educational and recreational trips, resource sharing, interest driven workshops, understanding NYS homeschool laws, after school activities and, spirit week. There will be a strong emphasis on preparing our children for real life challenges. Also, bonding and increasing social interactions will be encouraged among all.
This group is for parents, tutors and/or teachers of homeschooled children. Your location does not matter to us as long as you can attend the meetups (which will primarily be located in Brooklyn around the Bedstuy, Crown Heights, Bushwick areas). Trips will vary in location. If you want to provide your child with a unique educational experience, this group is for you. If you're looking for an active community that believes in taking control of our children's future, you've come to the right place.
