Consider learning styles in the same light. We each see things through our own…

Creating Your Homeschool Mission Statement and Goals

Mission Statements and Goals for your homeschool? Yes, hear me out. You do not need a Homeschool Mission Statement, but I can tell you that having one does give you a focus when times get tough.
