Reviews for Homeschool Teacher
“This is the book you will want to read when you begin homeschooling. It demonstrates how a rigorous, academic approach to schooling can be achieved in the minimum amount of time each day, and will instill a love for learning and knowledge in your children.” — noonsite.com
“I recommend Homeschool Teacher unequivocally. It is filled with sound advice and learning practices. There were reassurances that “you have got this”, which is something even a veteran homeschooler likes to hear. Laird does all of this while weaving in the cool adventure that is her family’s lifestyle. As Laird herself will tell you, you won’t agree with everything in her book, or maybe you will. There is enough practical and important information in this book to make it an essential book to have in the bookshelf of any homeschooling parent. My only complaint about this book is that I didn’t read it until Sean was 16 years old.” — Secular Eclectic Academic Homeschoolers, seahomeschoolers.com
“I cracked it open for a quick look and was hooked in the first pages. WHERE WAS THIS BOOK WHEN WE WERE PLANNING TO TAKE OFF? … This book would have put my fears to bed and given me the tangible direction I craved. Homeschool Teacher is clearly and simply written, and aligns spectacularly well to support what *most cruisers actually do* — that is, draw from an eclectic mix of resources and curricula to fit a child/family.” — Behan Gifford, author of Voyaging With Kids,sailingtotem.com
