Hi there. Glad to have you here. Let me introduce myself. My name is Lisa Marie. I'm a busy homeschooling mom of 5 kids ranging from preschool to high school. My husband works in the golf industry. Our family lives in Ontario, Canada.
Our homeschooling journey started like many others. When my oldest son was supposed to be starting Junior Kindergarten, neither of us were ready for him to go. We decided to give homeschooling a go instead. Here we are many years and many kids later still giving it a go!
When we finally dived into the idea of using curriculum, I started with the boxed American program that both my sister-in-laws were using with their kids. It was a great program, but the overwhelming Americana frustrated me.
A flip through sample curricula that are most popular in the homeschooling circles led me to realize that they are typically American - not very relevant to my Canadian children.
That started my search for Canadian programs / books / materials that I could use with my own children. As I hunted, I realized that if I was looking for Canadian content, others might be too. That was the beginning of The Canadian Homeschooler.
MY MISSION: To help Canadian homeschooling families connect with each other and also with companies and resources that will help them on their learning journey from start to finish. I want them to be able find curriculum, materials, and resources that are relevant to them, their experiences, and their history.
If you would like to connect, feel free to pop me an email or Facebook message.
Just a note: Although I try my best to be prompt with my replies, please be aware that as a homeschooling mom of many kids, I sometimes take longer than I’d like to respond, since my family comes before my work.
