I am an adoptive mom of 5 wonderful kiddos and I homeschooled 4 of them for several years. Prior to becoming a mom, I was a classroom aide in grades 1-3, a co-teacher in various pre-school classrooms (infants to age 3), and a lead teacher in Pre-K, as well as a before/after-school program leader. I have a bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and graduate coursework in special education. It was during the years that I homeschooled my kids that I tried my hand at creating resources for them. We did so many "out of the box" activities and I struggled to find resources for them online. I began creating material that met their individual needs and tied into what they were learning. The rest, they say, is history.
