Degrees and Certifications:
As the new facilitator for the H.O.M.E. program, I look forward to forging strong relationships with the families who are the foundation of this parent partnership.
For those who may be new to the concept, H.O.M.E. stands for Homeschool Opportunities for Merging Education. As an Alternative Learning Experience - Parent Partnership Program, we work with our families to help create a written student learning plan individualized for each child. We also offer resources and support from the Renton School District, and a variety of classes for students K-10. All of our incredible families help support each other with homeschool ideas and information. Working in partnership, we are able to provide a very rich learning experience for each child.
We welcome parents and students who have chosen this as an alternative to the regular school experience. It requires a huge commitment on the part of the parents, as they are the primary learning coaches. Most of our classes are considered enrichment classes, and are not meant to replace curriculum in core subject areas. Only our core high school courses in Language Arts, Science, Math, Art, and Social Studies, are complete courses, and these classes have a lot of homework which may require parent support.
Although my experience has been primarily in comprehensive and alternative secondary settings, I am thrilled to be embarking on this new adventure with the dedicated staff and the amazing students and families here at H.O.M.E. Here’s to a wonderful 2017-18 school year!
