EP 35: Learning at Home. With Julie Bogart

I discovered Julie thanks to Pilar (from episode 3) a homeschooling parent who’s been inspired by her work and guidance. So thankful for this connection especially these days when everyone has suddenly been asked to stay home and be homeschooling parents. Listen is as Julie shares her 20 plus years of experience home educating her five children.

  • Becoming a grandmother for the first time
  • Advice for new Covid19 homeschooling families due to stay-at-home orders
  • The difference between school at home and school and the amazing opportunities we have at home

  • Teatime and poetry a family tradition, you can also create or how to pair what you love with what they love.
