Welcome Back 2019-2020 School Year

Hello and Welcome!


I am so honored to be a part of your homeschool journey. Our theme this year is "The Adventure of Learning," and I can hardly wait to get started! Together, let's explore and inspire your child to truly engage in what interests them. When we connect to what we are interested in, learning naturally follows.


As we dive headlong into a new year, there are a few new and exciting things at Inspire, but most things have remained the same. One thing that is still a constant is that I am here for you to help you with whatever you need. It may be choosing curriculum, finding a great vendor, helping to see where your student is academically or something else. Please never hesitate to reach out. No question is too small, I am always here to listen.

I Can Statements

The “I Can How-to Guide” document will show how you can use “I Can Statements” to help your child and ensure that they are on track for their grade level. These guides are here to help you if you need direction, or if you merely want to see what other students at the same grade level are learning throughout the year. If you would like to check off the standards you complete with your child, fantastic. If you don’t, that's great too. I am merely presenting you with an awesome tool that could help further your homeschooling goals. This information will be sent at the beginning of the year.
