November 2017, Letter from the Editor

In this issue we are celebrating the 3 annual conferences Secular, Eclectic, Academic Homeschoolers hosts! Two are online conferences and one is an in-person conference. Each of the online conferences has a themed focus. These conferences are an important part of our commitment to providing support for the secular homeschool community. I have been involved in education, both traditional and non-traditional, for many years. The only things I miss about being involved in the traditional school setting are the insight, connections, and conversations with other educators. The many Secular, Eclectic, Academic Homeschoolers Facebook groups provide much of this type...

Julianna Speers: Service Oriented Nature Lover

I had the pleasure of meeting Julianna at the Secular Eclectic Homeschoolers Conference in West Virginia 2017. She did a lot of volunteering at the conference. Julianna and her mother, Karen, have already signed up to volunteer at the 2018 conference!  She is the type of person who sees a need and jumps in to help. Secular Eclectic Homeschoolers is lucky to have such a committed and caring teen as a part of our community. How long have you been homeschooling? Ever since I was born. What is your favorite part of being homeschooled? My favorite part of homeschooling is...

The Bibliophile Issue Brought to you by Build Your Library

Schedule: October 2017, Online Conference Letter from the Editor: October 2017 SEA Homeschoolers started because I wanted a community where I could talk about how to provide an innovative, academically rich journey through learning for my son, something that was eclectic, profound, and meaningful. That is what I aspire to, but like most journeys there have been highs and lows, and we do not always get there smoothly. Almost every high point came with a great deal of help, much of it from my fellow secular, eclectic, academic homeschoolers (even before there was a SEA Homeschoolers.)… Read More Subscriber-Only Giveaway:...

September 2017 Newsletter: The Tech Issue

Subscriber-Only Giveaway – Enter Here to Win The Science of Climate Change Letter from the Editor, September 2017 How is school going so far? Things are going fairly well here. LOL, there hasn’t been enough time for anything to get too out of kilter. We are in the transition stage, where the focus is on academics, making sure Sean has the skills he will need in college (time management is not his super power), and deciding where Sean wants to go to college. I am loving where we are right now (most days, 17 year-olds do have their moments), and missing...

Subscriber-Only Giveaway – Enter Here to Win RSO Astronomy 2 Letter from the Editor, August 2017 Whew. What a busy year it has been for me so far! I have been so busy; I have barely found time to breathe! It has all been exciting and fun though. I am a person who thrives with a lot going on in my life. A fellow author commented recently that I must be crazy to have four books coming out in a three month span. I will admit that sometimes it does feel a bit crazy, but I like it that way. Things...
