So You’re Thinking of Homeschooling: An Afternoon Conversation and Information Session

September 3 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

In these strange times, homeschooling is being considered by more and more people. Maybe you’ve thought of it before. Or maybe this is the first time you’re considering it. What is it like? How does it work? Can I do it?
Homeschooling brings up different images for different people. Maybe it’s idyllic picnics while reading classic literature aloud. Maybe it’s lively family discussions, punctuated by laughter and rhetoric. Maybe it’s still being in your pajamas at two in the afternoon, learning about fractions by baking cookies. Maybe it’s cajoling your kid (again) to diagram a sentence or them struggling to understand that algebra concept you haven’t used and forgot 15 years ago.

Maybe it’s a lot of pressure.

Whatever your preconceived notions or fears of homeschooling, the truths and realities can be very different. Well, except the part about doing work in your pajamas – that part is very true.
The truth is there are many ways to homeschool – as many ways as there are homeschool families. There are tools, and tricks, and help along the way. The trick is finding the tools that work for you.

You can find out more with Linda Hincks of Wren Homeschool Consulting in our upcoming talk So, You’re Thinking of Homeschooling: An Afternoon Conversation and Information Session. Find out Connecticut’s laws and guidelines, ask your questions, and get some answers.

Linda Hincks, a homeschooling veteran of 20 years, is a former classroom teacher and museum educator. She’s taught groups of 2-250 in diverse subjects from poetry to oceanography to raptor physiology. Through the years, she has helped many families in their homeschooling journey. She can help you, too.
