IEP stands for Individualized Education Plan, and, in the public school setting, is used to meet the requirements of special needs students. But truly, every child could benefit from an Individualized Education Plan to meet his/her unique needs and interests! This class discusses the public school mentality of the standard list of required subjects, and the paradigm shift necessary to move away from that thinking. Instead we will focus on each child’s individual talents, interests, strengths, gifts, and mission in life, and how to go about discovering those qualities and then crafting a curriculum for the year, and over a number of years, to meet educational goals based on those criteria.

She is the mother of six children and has been homeschooling for eighteen years. She loves having the children at home with her, and believes that homeschooling draws families closer together through the sheer luxury of time spent together.
