Have you heard about the Central Florida Homeschool Expo 2019? It is free and local!

Hello! My name is Yolanda Newton. I am a local homeschool mom, a local business owner, and an educator of over ten years. In my position interacting with other homeschooling families, I have noticed that there are so many close by resources that homeschooling families aren't aware exist. Almost daily I tell someone about a resource or idea that would fit their needs. 

I realized that what is needed is an EXPO for local businesses, organizations, and resources, to let homeschoolers know the fantastic things they are offering. And I am all about filling the gaps in the homeschooling community where needed!

Therefore, I would like to cordially invite you to attend the 1st Central Florida Homeschool Expo and Showcase to be held in downtown Kissimmee on July 15th from 10am-2pm!

5 Days To A Stress-Free Curriculum Choice

Are you feeling the stress of trying to select the right curriculum for your family?

Recently I was speaking with a fellow home educator whose current curriculum wasn't working. It had come to her highly recommended, and even though it was everything she was told, it wasn’t right for her. Now she was facing the stress of diving back into the maddening world of homeschool curriculum to find something new. She also had to face spending money again to purchase new materials.

This left me feeling horrible. Both as a home educator, and a professional educator with over 15 years of experience, I felt her pain. It especially stung because I knew what mistake she had made when selecting the curriculum. I have been able to avoid bouncing around in curriculum choices myself, and have been helping fellow educators for the last three years to do the same!
