I received an email from Sarah at Elementary Education Degree informing me that Journey to Excellence had been chosen as one of the 25 Best Sites for Homeschoolers for 2012. I was shocked and overjoyed!
Their site says ...
Homeschooling is skyrocketing in popularity as the inconsistency of public school quality and the expense of private school has made it harder for parents to promise their children the best education available. Parents who choose to homeschool use a variety of techniques, including the Montessori Method, developed by an Italian educator in the early 21st century, and other non-traditional teaching tactics.
The list below brings together some of the best blogs and websites being kept by families that homeschool. Many of the sites feature downloadable activity kits and other supplies for homeschoolers, and all of them offer personal stories and advice for parents considering homeschooling their kids.
I appreciated the recognition as an educator to my children, instead of just a mom who keeps her kids home for school. I do feel that I am an educator to two of the smartest and greatest students!
Thank you Elementary Education Degree for the distinction. Jump over to the site to see who else was honored.
