Talking with the Team ~ Behind the Scenes

Welcome to this behind-the-scenes episode here on the Art of Homeschooling Podcast, Talking with the Team!

Today, I’m chatting with my two amazing assistants! Dominique joined the team at the end of 2018 and Sarah joined us about a year later in early 2020. I feel so honored that I get to help support two homeschooling families while they help me support you! 

In this episode of the podcast, we’re talking all about the idea that homeschooling variety and diversity are what make the world a beautiful place! Just like a garden!

If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.

~ Cicero

Variety in Homeschooling Strengthens the Movement

We all have such unique journeys and stories, strengths and passions! And celebrating those differences can help us build connections and grow.

Here on the Art of Homeschooling team, we’ve each experienced homeschooling differently and have different energy and interests. And this contrast makes our collective work as homeschoolers supporting homeschoolers so much more beautiful, poignant, and powerful.

So listen in to this super fun conversation with Dominique and Sarah, my team!

Below, you’ll find time stamps to follow along with the conversation, as well as some links to explore more.

~ ‘Abdu’l-Baha (son of the founder of the Baha’i faith)
